I am allergic to almost every type of bandaid. My skin blisters where the adhesive adhers to it. I could get around that but a new problem cropped up. I was in the ER due to a severe asthma attack and they of course started an IV. They used one of the clear adhesive rectangles to hold the IV needle in place. When they took it off I had a blistered area 2 x 3 inches. Paper tape does the same thing.
I had my second allergist/immunologist specialty appointment today. I was told that I am extremely allergic to one or more substances. All the common ones that they test for are not the culprits. She elected not to do skin testing because she doubts they will find the culprits. She also said this response is likely worse since I have been off Remicade and Humira for over a year.
Didn't really answer your question other than to commiserate. I can tolerate Bandaid brand flexible fabric bandaids. I don't blister with those. Also the cartoon type badages are the worse cause of blistering in me.
