Allergic to Athletic Tape Adhesive

I play basketball and once every 3 month I sprain my ankle playing. Now my doctors, coach, everyone advises me to, wrap my ankle with tape before training, but I'm allergic to tape. What can I use instead of that tape, that can be a suport for that ankle?

I'd use one of those ankle support things that are made of elastic bandage fabric. Or get an athletic ankle support.

Also consider buying an ankle support made of fabric and elastic. You can try local pharmacies and also medical supply firms. There are many sites online to consider, also.

Try buying non latex tape instead of the usual stuff. I had the same problem but by using this tape there is no problem.

I would try Kinesio-tape, you can find it anywhere and my sister used it when she sprained her wrist (overworked it while typing which sounds pathetic bc it is pathetic) and she needed something that was strong but not adhesive plus she needed to be able to keep working (aka typing). Kinesio-tape was amazing! It looks wrinkly, kind of like waffle weave, when you put it on you stretch it a little bit and it will stick to itself plus I think the wrinkly-ness helps it stick to other things, but idk I've never used it on me.

I also don't know how it would work on a sprained ankle but I would at least give it a try and find out hopefully this can still help someone out there even tho you've probably moved on
