Patch adhesive - how to remove?
« on: April 23, 2024, 02:23:04 PM »

Hi All, I have just started HRT, on my 2nd Evorel Conti patch (so far, so good - hot spells dramatically reduced immediately!) but my question is, how do you remove the adhesive left on your skin after changing patch? My first one left a slightly dark, fluffy outline where it was, I have tried a shower scrunchy but it's still there.  Sounds daft, but I didn't want to scrub away at the absorption site too much?  ???

Hi! Try baby oil and cotton wool ball. That should do the trick.

Thank you! I don't have baby oil but will try some coconut oil.

baby oil works well - i think better than coconut.  I had to wear lots of patches and had lots of residue. 

You should anyway rotate the site so don't think there's a problem with scrubbing away once you've taken it off/moved elsewhere. 

The other thing i was recommended are zoff surgical wipes (from Amzon). I liked those less (more surgical-smelling and packaging faff) but they do work well too.

Hope it keeps helping you xx

Defo baby oil and a cotton pad.  You still have to rub a bit but comes off.

I saw an ad on insta for a reusable remover pad.  Wonder if that works better?
