I read all the info in the packet but it didn't say anything about getting the patch wet
I would get something like tegaderm to cover it when swimming, so it had more stick. It would also protect it. Tegaderm is a clear membrane, that holds well. It is called other things as well. Bioclusive is one of them.
I am on my fourth week and I have not protected my patches. I don't wash over the patch but I shower as usual. I do keep my temp of my showers down a little as I really like them hot. (Not sure if that's necessary) I also go to an aqua zumba class and have had no problems with the patches not staying on or coming loose.
