Insulin pump therapy and the use of flash or continuous glucose monitoring in children is increasing. The diabetes devices are attached to the skin for several days to weeks with a strong adhesive, and recently, several cases of allergic contact dermatitis in children caused by components of the adhesive have been reported. In this review, we discuss such problems. The most frequent cause of allergic contact dermatitis is acrylates in the adhesive material, and the problem is serious and calls for rapid development of devices used in the treatment and monitoring of Type 1 diabetes without allergenic agents.
