I underwent a second trial for a SCS. The trial lasted about a week and I experienced a lot of itching under and around the edges of the surgical tape. The tape and leads were removed on Tuesday and I'm still experiencing a lot of itching and the area is covered w/blisters. I think this is called contact dermatitis and I'm probably allergic to the surgical tape,or probably the adhesive material on the tape. Has anyone else experienced this, and if so, how long before the itching and the blisters cleared up? This was my second SCS Trial and it, too, was a failure.
