Allergic to Medical Adhesive?

What do you use if youre allergic to medical adhesive? I am a cardiac patient and now I can't get an EKG done, or cover my wound from surgery? Any ideas? Help please.

Medical advice/suggestions for something like this is something I do not feel we should supply as I feel sure the clinics have dealt with this many times and have an alternative solution.

  • Please discuss this with your doctor/nurse as they are the only people qualified to give you this information.
  • I feel sure everyone would like to help you but are we qualified for this?
  • There are a lot of adhesives that are available and probably some your pharmacist could recommend so talk to one of these before you think about taking advice from just anybody.

You are probably allergic to some chemical in the adhesive, not the adhesive itself. Try a different brand.

In the time it took you to wait for us, you probably could have googled it or asked


I only say that because some folks wait so long for a solution when they could do something else. It's not a criticism.

Here is just one article about hypoallergenic tape.

I hope it helps.

PS: If you do have a break out, sometimes the cheapest solutions can help. I use athletes foot cream from the dollar tree.

Sandi, sometimes people don't realize that it is going to take a few days for the question to get answers when they are submitting it. Also, once the question has been asked and answered well on ThriftyFun, another person who searches for it might come across this post.


When you find out the best alternative to this type of adhesive, please let us know. I had a friend in the past with this issue but I cannot remember how she dealt with it. Good luck!
