I’m allergic to Skin Tac, so bought some Mastisol in hopes of using it as an alternative on my pump and (mostly) CGM sites.
I should have looked at the size more closely when I purchased it. It looked the same as a bottle of Skin Tac, and cost about the same amount. So I was a bit surprised when it arrived today and I found it was a teeny tiny little bottle with no applicator.
So how do you apply it? What do you use? Do you put it down before or after alcohol? Can you put it over top of adhesive (such as Dexcom’s) and have it soak through and adhere like Skin Tac?
(I do still have some Skin Tac wipes, so I’m going to try them over top of the adhesive with having first put down Cavilon to see if I can tolerate it that way.)
