  •  Some hints from a retired RN (0+ / 0-)

    If you can, rotate your taping sites (i.e. don't tape the same places every day)


    Get paper tape from the drug store - not as indestructibly sticky as cloth surgical tape.

    If you MUST use surgical tape, ask the pharmacist for liquid tape remover (yes, it exists) that gets applied with a cotton swab around the edges of the tape and under the tape to loosen it.  It's a bit time consuming, but it does save your skin from repeated application of tape.

    Your great experience has reduced my anxiety about having this done when my cataracts "ripen".  

    There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.
