We have been using the Tegaderm with CHG for several months. There has been an occassional occurance of skin irration to the site. I have instructed staff to use a plain tegaderm if this occurs. Just as we have paitents that tolerate one type of tape better than others, not every patient will tolerate the Tegaderm with CHG. The occurance of irritation has occurred maybe twice in the past 6 months.
