Adhesive? I'm allergic to latex as well. My skin and the adhesive become one in seconds and my skin just rips off. No band aids or medical tape for me! It just popped up in the last couple years.
I'm nervous about labor and delivery because I will need an IV. Anyone else have this?

Have you tried paper tape?  That is what they have to use on me.  I am also allergic to Latex.

I have a latex semsitivity. They have silicone iv tubes and latex free bandages, just let know know before :)

Ohhh yeah... I am too... I have a hard time with adhesive but I'm not allergic to latex. It's terrible. I have a scar from a bandaid that I put on my leg as a teenager when I sliced myself shaving... I don't always have a choice though, I have to deal with the rash and scars to get things done. Like when I have this baby I have to have an epi/spinal cause I'm having a scheduled csection, and that is going to mess up my back for awhile... Good thing they make hydrocortisone creams, though I would t reccommend using them in broken skin like your pic....
