Marked Thighs (Omnipod)

I was and still siked about using the omnipod on my thigh, I love the out of sight out of mind. There is one thing that I don’t like about Podding on my thigh, I have marks on my leg and I think it’s terrible. I have tiny marks on my stomach but the marks on my leg looks terrible; I am glad they can’t be seen.  The marks kinda looks like a bug bite gone bad…lol I know we can’t have it all but darn, I hate the marks on my thigh. I’ll get over it. I guess I will make getting coco butter or ambi cream a must on my next pharmacy trip.  If you have the Omnipod and reading this, do you have any tips on how to avoid the marks on my thighs?

Be Blessed

    I have these marks from my regular pump infusion sets… I’m not sure what to do about them. I guess that they eventually go away, but I always have at least 20 all over my thighs, butt, and stomach.

    I like to joke about how I am polka-dotted!

    Not sure if these are the same as what you are experiencing with the Omnipod, but I would love to hear of a way to make marks disappear 🙂
