That's funny because today I had to get blood drawn and when I took the bandage off when it stopped bleeding, I irritated the skin on my arm. Now I have a weird red stripe on my arm.

No, I've never had any type of allergic reaction to the adhesive on those bandages.

Hmm. It's not as common as I thought, then. I mentioned it to a few people here at work & they said they had the same problem, so I was curious about how common the allergy really is.

I'm still recovering from the allergic reaction I had almost 2 weeks ago...

Yes, I am. I found out when I had to put a bandaid on my tummy because of a scratch I got.

The nurse that treated me for the reaction I got said I was lucky that I found out before I needed major abdominal surgery. OW!

What a weird question. But I guess it's cool, because I would have never thought of it otherwise.

Not really. I'm allergic to Band-Aid brand adhesive bandages...it usually takes off a layer of my skin when I take them off & I end up all rashy for a few days.

17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 8/3/05 - 2:58:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, but I hate it when I have the sticky residue on my skin because it's all....sticky.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 8/4/05 - 1:35:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
YES!! I'm the only person i know with that problem. Not band-aids, but that stupid tape. And the "hypoallergenic" stuff totally doesn't stick. Which sucks, because i banged myself up pretty regularly as a kid..
