What should I do if the patch falls off?

If the patch becomes loose, lifts at the edges or falls off, try to put it on again. You may secure the patch with an adhesive dressing (e.g. TegadermTM).

Put on a new patch immediately, if:

  • it is no longer sticky
  • it has become stuck to itself or another surface
  • it has other material stuck to it
  • it is the second time it has become loose or has fallen off

After putting on the new patch, you now have a new "Patch Change Day" and new Day 1.
