I have been using nicoderm pathces for 3 wks. The first 2 wks, there would be a pink spot after taking the patch off; but it would go away. The 3rd wk, I am consistently getting a red rash where the patch has been. I change where I wear the patch daily

It is possible that you are allergic to the medication in the patch, the adhesive, or what the patch is made of. Ask the pharmacist what you should do, I had to discontinue using them as the reaction got a little worse with me each time I used one. I am definitely allergic to the adhesive.
