I'm really stressed out. I'm wearing one of those heart monitors (for switching cardiologists, the new Dr is just seeing what he's working with, by a few tests); and I forgot I'm sensitive to adhesive. The adhesive on the heart monitor has been bugging me for about 24 hours now and I don't know if I should call my cardiologist about it...

      I’m sensitive to adhesives on my skin, too, so I know u never know what ingredients u may be reacting to, & some reactions can cause worse issues, so best 4 your doctor 2 know. :)

        @MeeB333 it's red a little blotchy and definitely itchy. But nothing out of an ordinary reaction I get to wearing an adhesive for too long?

          @CuriousCayden - It could be normal-ish, as some of us are more sensitive than others, of course, but, if you have any way to easily message your doc to let them know, I would, just to be on the safe side. Any worsening is cause for concern, obviously, but, even if it’s tolerable/manageable, it is nonetheless still a symptom/side effect your doctor should kno.

      Bugging u how? If there is any redness, rash, or other irritation & it’s not getting better &/or getting worse, you should definitely contact your doctor ASAP. Just to be safe, u know? :) Good luck!!! <3
