Re: HRT patch itching

Which one have you been using? I used the vivelle dot patch and did have a little irritation,but my doctor recommended a dab of cortisone cream after taking it off and cleaning the area. I think it helps to move it in a different place every time when you apply it to cut down on irritation.

Re: HRT patch itching

I think a lot of people have had good results with vivelle and every patch has a different adhesive and delivery system. You change the vivelle 2x a week which means it does not stay in one place too long to get irritated.

Re: HRT patch itching

I have been on Estrodiol for only a month. It didn't stay on after day 5 in the shower. I still got hot flashes, also after day 5, very tired with dizziness. I couldn't even vacuum for a half hour! I'm been off since last Wednesday - only 1 hot flash at work. My Bday is Thursday 49 guess I am close enough to menapause age.

Re: HRT patch itching

Just to affirm the response above mine, I am on the Vivelle patch as well and no problems here. I did ask about itching from it since I had seen some posts about it before my doc gave it to me and he said since it's changed twice a week it shouldn't bother me and it hasn't. Good luck!
