7yo is on this and everywhere we put it when we take it off you can see a perfect square and it last for weeks we moved from her hip to her back to allow the spots to heal and now we will be having to move it back to her hip due to her back being covered with tender red spots, this is the best med for her, I just wish they mad it in a pill form or a longer lasting liq. form.
Hydrocortisone is a good choice if you have it at home. I would also call the pharmacist and get his/her opinion. They excel in knowing drugs and related information.
Our daughter had the same issue. I don't know if you also have noticed an adhesive border left behind around where the patch was as well?? Like a bandaid would leave. I think this was somehow adding to the redness and raw looking skin. What I do is, after a bath I use baby oil on a cotton ball to remove any remaining adhesive even some you probably can’t really see, then wipe the area with a towel and apply hydrocortisone cream. The next day I put it on the other side. Every time I put the patch on I wipe the area with isopropyl rubbing alcohol and dry with a second cotton ball. Once completely dry, put it on. I think before, any sweat or oils on her skin was making the irritation worse and made her itch. I will also say, she has been on it for a few months now and the irritation seems to be less and less.
