Allergic to steri-strips??
I am allergic to virtually every adhesive, including those on bandaids.
The skin on our stomachs tends to be rather sensitive. I have had major problems there as well.
Have you had other issues with any other products like medical tape? I can only use paper tape. I removed my steri-strips early and currently have a mess on my stomach from having part of my sutures open and having to use tape and large bandaids over that area. I've been using hydrocortisone cream to try to reduce the irritation. That's all I know to do. Good luck, and if you find something better, let me know!!
