How can I avoid irritated or sensitive skin caused by the Dexcom G7 sensor adhesive?

Some people may be sensitive to the sensor adhesive, so extra care can help. Follow the insertion instructions carefully, review the site preparation tips and consider these points:
If applying the sensor on a new site: Don't use the same sensor site twice in a row.
Keep skin healthy: Consider moisturizing your skin between sensor sessions to avoid dry skin, but do not use moisturizer on the same sensor site the day you insert the sensor.
If you have significant skin irritation (itching, burning, and/or rashes at the site of the adhesive patch), contact your healthcare provider. For recommendations on skin irritation prevention products, please find the answer here.
