Event Description
Incredibly bad rash; i use the dexcom g6 and a couple of months ago i started getting red, raised bumpy dots that itch really bad and feel like they're burning. It has caused me to take off the sensor early the last 2 times i used them because it was so bad. The rash lasts a couple of weeks. I have read on (b)(6) that this is happening to a lot of dexcom g6 users and just recently started over the last few months, like me. I've used this product for 4 years and only recently started getting rashes. The (b)(6) posts state that dexcom recently changed the formula of the adhesive. Fda safety report id# (b)(4).
