I am going down south and don't want to have tan lines from my patch so I was wondering if I am able to put it on the underside of my upper arm.
I would be a bit leary of placing it on the underside. That skin is pretty thin right there, about like the skin on the breast and it is advised NOT to apply it to the breast. It's also closer to your breast. I wouldn't do it. That area is also rubbed a lot when walking because of arm movement, and the patch probably will not stay affixed for very long. This medication is absorbed through the skin and doesn't have to go through your digestive system... the places recommended are basically on skin that's thicker and covers muscle. I bet you want to hide it. Try placing the Ortho Evra Patch on the upper part of your buttock or on a side of your lower abdomen that's covered by panties/bikini. Have a great time on your trip!!
