I don't know if it is normal but the skin where I apply my patches (upper arms) has become tougher/coarser and itches badly at times (don't scratch!). A doctor (recent ER visit) did ask me about any effects at the application site and did not seem surprised by my response.
Maybe your situation is an extreme example of this although in my case this affect has taken 4-5 years to develop.
