Anything that heats up your body/skin can cause the patch to release more medication into your system than its suppose to. If you have a fever you should remove the patch. I wore the fentanyl patches for a while and the warnings were very clear about too much sun exposure, running a fever, etc, anything that would cause your body temp to rise. Even a hot shower.
