Sometimes my patch will come off before the three days are up. I have heard there is a cover of some type that is applied over the patch to keep it on my skin.
I had the same problem. I purchased a products called Tegaderm patches. They come in different sizes. If you have a brand that makes big patches you'll need to buy a roll of the stuff. It works great! I purchased mine from a local store but I would recommend purchasing them through amazon or 3m directly. The patches can stay on for 7 days. It flexes with the skin when you move and is amazing stuff! Here are a few websites. While you wait for them you can also purchase them from stores that sell them but they only come with 8 patches or so and they're expensive at stores. I will give you a website with a picture of the Tegaderm patches that you can purchase at stores too! Hope this helps! They work GREAT!
