I am allergic to adhesives, all adhesives. Bandages scare me because a typical band-aid will peel off my skin when you take it off. Unfortunately, today my doctor determined I needed to wear a Holter monitor for 24 hours I am doing my best to make it through (only 12 hours to go.) I can see the hives forming around the leads.
Ten years ago before heart surgery, I had to wear a Holter monitor for 2 weeks and my cardiologist was able to find some pediatric leads that had very little adhesive on them and we managed with them.
I know see there are special leads for those who are allergic to adhesive. If we need to do this for more than 24 hours, we will have to wait until I can buy these new leads. You cannot buy them on Amazon but they are available online.
I hope this is helpful for others.
