Itching is the worst! I know because I itched for months before discovering the problem to be isopropyl alcohol. The problem with allergic reactions is that it is tough to clear them up to pinpoint the problem once they get bad. I had to narrow my regimen to nothing but the appliance for over a week. I did figure out the culprit, but followed up anyway with a dermatologist for patch testing.
I have been mostly rash free for almost a year, but I do have sensitivities. What is tough is not being able to use skin prep. What I do indstead is apply a very thin layer of Aquaphor skin ointment which provides a layer of protection and moisture between sin and wafer. I get a week's worth of wear time now. Good luck!!!
