With my dog and two cats shedding or climbing all over me?... I can just see a needle pushing pet hair right into my skin--not to mention where ever their paws have been!... NOT through the clothes! NO WAY! LOL

I took Byetta with very small needles. No problem through the clothes. I just really did not like the idea. Tried it a couple of times.

Do not use insulin yet but remember seeing my sister-in-law's sister-in-law putting the insulin needle through her clothes into her tummy without using anything & she was a DOCTOR too!!

I did byetta for years. I did insulin while pregnant. Somewhere along the line I was told I did not need to use alcohol. My stomach is covered in clothing. I don't think there are many germs there. If I was dirty or sweaty then I would clean my tummy otherwise I did not use the things. But, if you do it is good to know about the recall.

you know what i think is interesting about some of these recalls?? like those hips what?? do they recall the person?? lol how do they do that and the hamburger they recall that weeks after it happens after most people have already consumed that stuff weeks and weeks ago
so goes it with the alcohol wipes for the injections wahh!!!

In case you haven't seen it in the news...

I don't use alcohol wipes anymore, they dry my skin out way too much and warm water and soap are just as effective--but for those of you who do use the alchohol wipes, please take note of this news article. Alcohol wipes from the Triad Group Mfg have been recalled, they are actually CAUSING infections...
