They have been present for almost 2 weeks after discontinued use. The swelling has gone down, but I'm still itching and red. Will these go away?
Skin irritation for example rash or slight redness and itching of the skin where the patch has been is a side effect of the Androderm patch. Mild skin irritation usually disappears within 3 to 4 days after removal of the patch. If skin irritation persists, your doctor or pharmacist may be able to help you. They may suggest hydrocortisone cream, or similar, to help with the itch and redness. It is recommended that you do not use the same skin site for at least seven days to reduce the risk of skin irritation.
