During the past years, diabetes diseases have increased significantly worldwide. However, new technologies such as continuous glucose measurement using a sensor, applied in the subcutaneous tissue, are developing just as rapidly. Furthermore, improvement of insulin pump therapy contributes to an increased quality of life. All these modern devices for diabetes therapy have in common that they stick in place on the skin for at least several days. In recent years there have been increasing reports of skin reactions, in particular severe contact dermatitis due to the devices and their adhesives. In particular, isobornyl acrylate initially present in a sensor set for glucose measurement, was identified as a main allergen. Evolving a contact allergy may result either in the necessity to quit the measuring system or insulin pump, or in cross-allergic reactions to other systems.
