I HATE that feeling when the gel liner begins to slip because of sweating!!
Since you are working on weight loss, is there a chance that your liner
is a bit
too large? It's been my experience that if I had shrunk a little bit
and the Alpha
liner was a tiny bit too large, I sweated even more than usual, and the
lost its grip on my skin frequently.
I tried the Certain-DRI that Lindsay recommends with this Alpha liner.
have much effect, because the Real problem was that the liner didn't fit
enough anymore. I was told to wash the residual limb at night, and apply
the Certain-DRI to the dry skin then.
I'm using an ALPS Easyliner now. I still sweat a lot, but not quite as
much. I have
a different problem now - a rash from the sweating.
