     I haven't had this for ages but this morning I have a red, itchy and burning irritation all around the outside of my wafer.  I put some duoderm on it but wondered if there is anything better.
     I've been sunbathing in the backyard and using a small pool to cool off.  We have chlorine in it.  Think that has anything to do with it?
     Thanks!

Top outer area for my husband is red and a tad itchy not burning (yet anyway). Wondering if all this hot weather is having an impact on this. I pray it is not a reaction to this appliance's adhesive. We switched from one we liked to this one that he is now used to for the past few months.

We used a strip of the duoderm in that specific area for 2 changes but it didn't seem to help like it helps others.

     yeah, wondering whether I should have my family doc take a look at it.  With the weekend coming up and us going to the shore on Monday, I hate to let it go.
