I have this issue you see. I have a nasty rash.
It happens every time I do it. Ok, so it’s only once a month. You see I don’t get it for free. I have to pay for it and can only afford on session a month. It never lasts as long as I want it to. Other people sessions last so much longer than mine. I know this due to extensive Internet research. That’s a different issue though.
So back to my rash. It starts with an itch. About a day after I’ve put it in, then it starts to get red. With in 2 days the rash is there and it just gets worse and worse.
This week I finally asked for advice about my rash. I asked if I needed to change the speed at which it goes in?
Do I need to try different positions or technique?? No. The answer was so simple. Use protection! Use it every time.
So from now on, every time I insert a new Dexcom CGM sensor I will be using a “tough pad” between me and the device to solve my little problem. I will now always practice Safe Dex.
