Keeping my sensitive skin protected with Nexcare Sensitive Skin Products #giveaway

I remember when my fear of needles first started. Over my seventh birthday I was diagnosed with a rare disease. I was hospitalized for over two weeks and pricked and prodded many, many times each day. Once I was released, the follow-up required me to have many vials of blood taken often. I remember my first outpatient visit when the nurse-in-training tried to take my blood and dropped the needle. I remember the vial breaking and blood being everywhere. That was the beginning of the end of me not being a good needle-taker. I try deep breathing, not looking etc and try my best to handle the prick of the needle. Then after the needle comes the bandage or tape over the cotton ball. Sometimes my skin would get itchy from the tape or bandage, sometimes I would have a reaction but it always hurt to pull-it off. I remember my mom counting before ripping the bandage off or trying to do it quickly as to not hurt me. Having very sensitive skin I’ve stopped counting how many reactions I have had to the bandage or tape after it’s been put on or after I’ve pulled it off.

Just having finished chemo at a well-known hospital, I would have thought that the bandage and tape given to me after a needle would have changed over the past 27 years. Although I didn’t have a reaction to the needle or tape, both left lots of sticky glue on my skin, sometimes did not stay on long enough after the needle or stay in place. There were days when I needed to get a few tests done and have some blood taken that my arm was covered in glue and a little red from the bandages or tape given to me. Having sensitive skin it was very uncomfortable and in the summer months it just didn’t look good on my arms!

I’m all for bringing my own stuff with me if they work. Enter Nexcare Sensitive Skin Adhesive Pads and Nexcare Sensitive Skin Tape. These two products have made the aftermath of getting needles or a shot, chemo or taking blood all that more comfortable.

I can’t say enough good things about Nexcare Sensitive Skin Tape. Just by feeling the tape it feels different from the other tapes that I’m offered at the hospital. It’s soft and perfect for my sensitive skin. The benefits of the sensitive skin tape are:

  • Pain-free removal, yet holds securely; proprietary silicone adhesive achieves new level of gentle, yet secure, performance
  • Tears easily by hand, no scissors needed
  • Repositionable
  • Patented paper blend backing for breathability
  • Water resistant; can be worn while showering
  • Used in hospitals
  • Hypoallergenic

Nexcare Sensitive Skin Tape

Every few weeks I need to get a shot in my stomach. As much as I dislike needles, I dread this one as does my nurse that gives it to me. This needle is HUGE and very painful! The Nexcare Adhesive Pads have been great to put on my stomach after I get my shot. As well, following my last chemo treatment I got a little reaction on my arm that looked similar to a small burn. The Adhesive Pads were great to cover up the wound. Each box contains 4 sterile adhesive pads that are 3 inches by 4 inches. The benefits of the Adhevise Pads are:

  • Absorbent, non-stick pad wicks fluids away from the wound
  • Clinically designed for fragile or sensitive skin
  • Constant adhesive strength for as long as it’s left in place, unlike traditional adhesive dressings that increases adhesion over time
  • Clean removal and minimal hair pulling
  • Repositionable and water resistant
  • Hypoallergenic adhesive and latex free
