Allergic to Steri Strips??
I am allergic to just about all strips and bandages out there.. The irritation that was around my incisions was worse then the incisions them selves. They finally said to leave them off and not put anything on there. I still have scars from where the bandages and strips were.

P.S. My year + long absence has NOTHING to do with my WLS, or my type of WLS. See my profile.

Thank you for all of your replies. I go to the DR. on tuesday and I'll have them looked at then. My doc did a wonderful job on the incisions they are really fine and thin, it doesn't even look like I had surgery. Anyhoo, thanks again :)
My steri-strips stayed on a 2 full weeks after my surgery, and I started getting the blisters a couple of days before my 2 week follow appt with the surgeon. When I went in he removed them and then we just used antibacterial soap on them and some antibiotic salve and they healed up with no problem.
