Climara Patch

Hi...I have a bit of a silly question regarding the patch. I change it once a week, alternating positions on my body as instructed. Here is my question: How do I get rid of all the sticky stuff on my skin after I remove the patch? I know, it's a silly question and I hope the most serious problem I have with this patch!

Hello I am also on the climara patch, and I know exactly what it is your'e talking about. The ring around the patch..that stays on you when the patch is removed. Well I will tell you what I do, In the shower I use a wash cloth or sponge and soap it up really good and scrub like crazy. It does come off I promise. It might leave your skin allitle red for a few minutes from all the scrubbing, but it does go away.I hope this helps you...and no your question is not a silly one. I personaly like these questions..I feel better about answering them...LOL...
Always check with your dr first for medical advise.

What tried once and it worked so well I've done it a few times....after the sticky stuff dried (like the next morning) I shaved it off The reason I did it again is ya know those fine hairs you have on your body? Well the OUCH when you take off the patch was helped ALOT by having those things it took off the sticky stuff Other times I just scrub it off like someone else said. Going to get some baby oil and give that a try too.

Hi, I am using the Climara patch now and before I put on the new patch I clean the area with Alchohol. This morning I tried cleaning of the RING from the old one with the alchohol and it worked real well. Diane

I've been on the Climara patch now for three weeks and I really love it.

When I go to change my patch once a week I do the following: I take off my old patch first, then shower and dry, put on a new patch in different location. Then I check on the skin where the old patch used to be and then just peel off the rest of the old adhesive remaining that didn't come off in the shower.

thank you

Hi and thanks to everyone who responded to my post. I tried the baby oil trick and it worked! It took some effort to get it off, but I was able to get it all off. One of the patches was a couple of weeks old so that stuff was really stuck on there good!

Once again, thank you for all the support I get here
