removal of patch leaves a frame...

Not sure how to describe it other than a frame. When I change my patch, the one i remove leaves this frame on my skin, kind of like get around the edges of a bandaid....

Re: removal of patch leaves a frame...

LoveTheOcean, since the HRT patch/dot is like a bandaid, you will always have the'dirt' mark around it when you remove it. I just scrub it the dirt residue in the shower with a washcloth or sponge (loofah) and it's gone. When you move the patch from left to right side you never use the exact same location and you're free to scrub it.

Re: removal of patch leaves a frame...

Hi,

There is a product you can get from the pharmacist. I got mine at Walmart. It will easily remove the adhesive residue without the scubbing. After a while, the scrubbing gets old. It is a little pricey, and since it has been a while since I have used patches, I'm afraid I don't remember what it is called. However, the bottle lasted for over a year. It only takes a small amount on a cotton ball.

Just ask any pharmacist for a product that removes patch adhesive. They keep it behind the counter....at least they do here.

Easy to remove after a shower, or hold ice cube to the area, and it rubs right off.

Re: removal of patch leaves a frame...

I think the product that Kay is thinking of is called Detachol. That's what I use...it's OTC but I found that my local pharmacies didn't carry it...they had to order it. Apparently it's something used a lot in Pediatric patients so it's good for sensitive skin, too. I have hyper sensitive skin and it's never bothered me. It was about $18 and so far I've been using that same bottle for just at 2 years. It only takes a little. It's sort of like a skin-grade Goo-Gone....I've found that it's better to use it before a shower and then wash off any residue with soap and water. Works great without a lot of scrubbing!

I get the same thing
Any oil will remove the "glue" even olive oil and you don't need much.

Re: removal of patch leaves a frame...

I FOUND A WONDERFUL SOLUTION TO THIS!!! Last time I was at my dr I was complaining about that ring left by the patch and he said "Oh... we have an easy fix for that". He gave me an individual packet of a small gauze presoaked in something that EASILY takes that stupid ring off without leaving so much as a mark or red skin (no scrubbing involved!). It is called Triad Adhesive Tape Remover Pads and I order mine through Amazon.com, but have seen them elsewhere on the internet and even at Walgreens or CVS sometimes. They made my life SOOOO much easier!!!!

Re: removal of patch leaves a frame...

Oh, I'm so excited to look into both the Detachol and the Triad Adhesive Tape Remover Pads!

I've tried various oils and soaps and stuff, but nothing has made that big of a difference. I'm constantly breaking the skin around where I put my (Climara) patches with all that annoying scrubbing and those areas tend to take awhile before completely healing. And because of this, I'm often a scabby, red mess over much of my lower abdomen and backside and have trouble finding a good place for the next patch.

Thanks so very much for the helpful and awesome suggestions!
