I am still healing from my surgery and it's complications [i.e. the infection in the incision that caused the wound to open up and become a big stupid hole in my abdomen].
Anyway, each and every day, my wound has to be dressed and packed with gauze, cleaned with sterile saline water and then covered with abdominal pads that must be taped onto my abdomen with medical tape.
I am having a problem with the tape though. My skin is becoming irritated from it and pulling the tape off everyday is making small sore spots. Also I can NOT get the adhesive OFF!! It's so irritating and even painful cuz lots of adhesive residue means the tape becomes almost glued to my skin which hurts when its taken off.
Does anyone know of any miracle adhesive remover? I have tried soap and water, alcohol, baby oil, lotion, baby wipes, and scrubbing with a washcloth and soap [a very BAD idea I might add cuz I was really sore after that!]. I have no clue what to try next or if there even is adhesive remover for skin.
I would appreciate any help or ideas that don't cause pain! :-) TIA
