    By 3M do you mean the Medipore kind? That's the only kind I can use since it's breathable, otherwise I get a rash.

    Do you use a skin barrier along with the tape? That should make it stick better.

    I use a tape called Mepitac. Costs a small fortune, but it's the only type that sticks well to sensitive skin with minimum irritation.

    If I buy the wider more expensive (not the store brand) paper tape it works better than the cheap stuff.

    I've been using this stuff for years as its the only thing I've found that will stick.

    hypafix

    You can cut it to the lengths you need and it has a paper backing you remove
    to expose the adhesive side.

    Hypafix or Fixomull, which is similar but stretches. To remove it from sensitive skin, soak it in olive oil for 30 minutes to 1 hour or more.

    it's the medipore H cloth tape. they've been using it on my wound. it sticks great and don't leave the sticky glue stuff on your skin. looks real expensive at 3m but maybe you can find it elsewhere cheaper.
