I am wondering if anyone can share their opinion with me if you have been on a pain patch. Originally I had no issues with the patch. I was using a clear waterproof cover to protect it to make sure it lasted the full 7 days but now I can barely keep the patch on for 4 days. I started noticing I was developing little liquid bubbles between the pain patch and the clear cover. I figured it was because my body temperature had increased but because of the liquid under the patch my skin was really getting irritated and I was starting to get blisters. I took the patch off and did not put a new one on for a couple of weeks. On Friday I put the patch on but did not cover it this time. This seemed to be working great until I noticed that I was getting a little fluid built up in the patch again. The corners started turning up and the patch was actually slipping, so I decided to cover a portion of the patch and leave enough uncovered area so the patch and my skin could breath... Now the area that I have covered looks like it has been drenched in a liquid. Does anyone know if the patch is still working? I am so afraid that it might not be effective now. Today, day four is the first day that I feel like my old self so I hate to take off the patch and start this whole process over again... Any opinions are welcomed. I have asked my doctor but he doesn't have a clue and said he would ask the rep...
