As a victim of refractory depression I have only found one medication that worked, EMSAM, unfortunately I am allergic to acrylic adhesives. Has anyone found a way to get around the contact dermatitis the EMSAM acrylic matrix can cause?

Hi Keller,

While I may not have personal experience with EMSAM, I did want to suggest trying some sort of topical anti-inflammatory compound to help combat any dermatitis that might occur after applying the adhesive.

A couple alternative remedies that you might want to look into are:
lavender essential oil (can help reduce redness, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and more)
topical ointments that contain cayenne pepper (for its great anti-inflammatory benefits)

There are a plethora of other essential oils that offer similar benefits as well.

I hope this helps!

@David thank you, unfortunately the adhesive is part of the medication delivery matrix and any oils etc tend to interfere with the delivery. I am talking to my pdoc about an immune modulator as a possible bypass to the response.
