if you use estrogen patches and are annoyed at the residue that your clothes fabric and the adhesive leaves on your skin, I've got two suggestions for you:
-> use IV dressings overtop of the patches. The dressing adhesive doesn't leave that residue behind
-> use baby oil and a small cotton ball and some elbow grease to get rid of the residue that is already there
@SuricrasiaOnline I have no experience with patches, but, in my experience, baby oil isn't enough for some types of glue (used in some types of band-aid etc). Chlorhexidine or desinfectant alchohol usually does the job, though.
@pcy I haven't tried alcohol. I have just found that baby oil does the trick (I think it just softens it up enough to be rubbed away)
@SuricrasiaOnline This may be what you're referring to, but Tegaderm (yes, it's a brand name, sorry) is relatively inexpensive in quantity and reportedly great at keeping medicine patches on skin. Stays on for a week or so, showerproof, etc.
(And deals with flexing, etc. great: just took one off my knee a couple days ago, had been on for about a week.)
@SuricrasiaOnline That sounds a lot better for the skin than what I’ve done with Goo Gone. I liked the even dosing of a patch for my ADHD meds but gave up on it quickly due to skin irritation.
