Some time later, Stephen and Mal have chips and salsa for dinner, while Stephen talks about Mal's many allergies, including adhesives. Whenever she puts on a band-aid, the part of skin that touches the adhesive will develop a rash.
So Mal bought some new band-aids today to try and prevent that from happening with the band-aids she's been using for her biopsy wounds, which had started to make her skin red and itchy.
- Mallory is also allergic to peanuts (which she can't eat but can be around), latex (which she cannot be around), bug bites and some antibiotics.
- The bandages she bought were the 3M Nexcare™ Sensitive Skin Bandages (to use) and the CVS Health Gentle Silicone Bandages (as backup).
