DEXCOM G7 UNDERLAY / BARRIER PATCHES
The Sugar Patch
DEXCOM G7 UNDERLAY/BARRIER PATCHES 1.65 INCHES DIAMETER
Many of our friends have experienced severe adhesive reactions from CGM sensors, so we have made some simple unprinted barrier tapes, with the same hypoallergenic tape used in our patches, that will keep the sensor tape from touching the skin and causing reactions, itching, and/or adhesive chemical burns.
The DEXCOM G7 Circular Shaped Adhesive Barrier patches go under the sensor, protecting you from the adhesives used in the diabetes technology that you use. The barriers are large enough to protect your skin under Dexcom G7, yet small enough to be completely covered by our designer patches/overlays. We recommend that you also use one of our over patches to additionally secure your sensor.
The barrier patches are designed to be applied to the skin underneath the sensor to protect sensitive skin from the adhesive of the sensor. Clean and allow the skin to dry in the area where you will be applying the sensor. Remove the paper backing from the barrier patch and apply to the skin. Peel the backing away from the sensor. Place it over the barrier patch and insert the sensor through the patch. Use one of our overlay patches over the sensor and barrier patch to keep it secured to the skin. Be sure to pat dry the patches, or use a hair dryer on a low setting to dry the patches, after bathing or showering.
