alternative to surgical sticky drape in OR?

Nurses Stress 101


Question for surgical nurses about drape adhesive, hoping your answers will help me and others! 

So I had a c-section and I had a severe skin reaction with hives all throughout my entire belly, super itchy, with hives, and all that. I figured it was from the sticky glue thing on the drape they put on.  I'm expecting another surgery, what is an alternative to the blue sticky drape they put on during the prep? I know it is now the yellow/orange looking cleaner they put on - I shouldn't worry about that as I had that on my belly and my upper thighs and my upper thighs were fine. Please help!
