The patch is worn discreetly on the thigh, 24 hours a day. The patch is recommended to be replaced within 14 days. If redness or irritation occurs during use, remove the patch immediately as instructed. Should the plaster fall off or drop at the edges, simply change the plaster.
Guide to remove patch after use
When removing the patch, it is recommended to place one hand against the skin to provide support for the skin while the patch is gently pulled off along the leg. Do not pull away from the skin, but instead along the skin. To ease the removal, it is recommended to use a skin lotion to help loosen the adhesive. The patch typically begins to loosen itself after 10-14 days.
