ZINC OXIDE ALLERGY:
A small number of people are naturally allergic to Zinc Oxide Adhesive, which is common in most adhesives on tape (e.g. Rigid tape; some glues spray). Symptoms: skin irritation and minor swelling. Symptoms may take 2-3 days to subside, washing skin thoroughly after use can minimize this effect. If your symptoms are severe or persist, stop using the product and consult your doctor.
Hypoallergenic Fix-It can act as a barrier to help prevent allergic reactions and improve adhesion. However, heavy sweating over a long period may spread tape adhesive off the barrier base.
Avoid moisturizing skin with lotions or oils before strapping as this hinders tape adhesion. Dry and clean skin prior application. Using Pillar Sports Hypo Fix-It can also aid adhesion, and prevent tap-ing directly over sensitive skin and wounds.
Shaving areas of taping will improve adhesion and facilitate tape removal after use.
