Pump sites are on stomach where they work best for me. Way too old to be needing sunscreen there. 😁
How would you get sunscreen on a pump site? I use Omnipod, the insertion sites are covered by the pod. Isn’t the insertion site covered by the adhesive patch on the other kind?
No effect on pump infusion site, but sunscreen DID melt the plastic housing on my Medtronics Paradigm 723 Insulin Pump itself once! Permanent fingerprints melted into plastic after handling pump after applying sunscreen!
I had no idea sunscreen could cause problems. I can’t say I’ve ever even noticed whether I put it on near or around the site, but I’m pretty sure I must have – I live in Florida. No issues I guess?
If you wear a pump, have you ever gotten sunscreen on a pump site? If so, share if it had any effect and how you handled it in the comments! Cancel reply

No memory of sunscreen on a pump site having any effect whatsoever.
