30 day event monitor

30 day event monitor

Hi everyone,

I have been wearing my monitor for 2 weeks now and I have started to get rawness and blistering from the patches. The blisters Are starting to fill with a little oozing ( gross I know) Has anyone had this problem? I tried calling my company that is handling my monitor but apparently a 24 hour service isn’t 24 hours. Can I move the patches a little over so I can let the rawness breath and heal? They really hurt. 😞I scar easily and hate to have these as marks. I plan on calling in the morning but wanted to know if anyone else experienced this. The picture I added is when I removed it to shower because it was change day

I had that happen to me - You have had a reaction to them and in the future you need to make sure they use the sensitive ones over the normal as it will happen again if you do not... E45 Cream helps with treating mine and might help you for some relief.. Regards Rhonda

I made another call last night and she is sending me the hypoallergenic ones. Hopefully they don’t do the same! Thanks!

I had this happen to me, it was from the adhesive having too much movement (Pulling on my skin). I moved the patches without asking and they didn't even notice!
