Hey Ginger, I use a pump and I love it, but I’m getting really, really sick of having the left-over gunk from the infusion site tape all over my old sites! I can’t get it off, and it looks gross. How do I get rid of it? Oh, yes, I remember that obnoxious tape residue! What you need are Adhesive Removal Pads, which you can usually find in pharmacies. They’re kind of like alcohol swipes but obviously contain a different assortment of chemicals in them! They work like a charm though! You just rub the pad on the old adhesive residue (sometimes you’ve gotta rub kind of rigorously) and it washes off. If you can’t find them in the pharmacy, you can also buy them on the internet . They’re only $3.89 for a box of 100 on the website!
Taping the knee has become a standard method of treating pain caused by a poorly aligned kneecap ( patella ). The idea is that the tape helps hold the kneecap in better alignment. But does the tape actually improve the position of the kneecap? Past research is unclear. This study involved 16 young women with alignment problems of their patella. Researchers took pictures of the bones of the subjects' knees using computed tomography (CT). The CT scans were used to see the position of the knee caps before and after taping the knee, and with or without having the subject tighten the quadriceps muscle. Only four knees showed even a slight improvement in patellar alignment with taping. In the rest of the knees, taping made no difference in alignment at all. Patellar taping may indeed help ease pain or provide support for the knee cap. But the authors conclude that the benefits from taping do not seem to be from correcting the alignment of the patella.
