Re: advice: glue ring wearing the Patch

Stater -- this happens with any of the estrogen patches.

I use Vivelle, and I've found that locating it so my cotton panties cover it helps a lot, as does not wearing dark clothing if it's not covered by panties.

And I got desperate the other day, as I had several rings and wanted them gone before a doctor's appointment. I got a little trial size of baby oil. I put a little squirt on a cotton ball and dabbed it on the residue. I let it sit for about 60 seconds (the amount of time to, uh, "use the facilities") and it wiped right off. That small trial size bottle looks like it'll last quite a while.

My previous method may fall into the TMI department: if you wait for about 24 hours, the residue is much harder. You can mindlessly pick at it while not sleeping due to insomnia (nope, my dosage isn't quite correct yet!). I think I prefer the baby oil method!

I use alcohol on a cotton ball and it works fine for me. Takes the adhesive ring right off.
