Evorel sequi patches waterproof?

Posted , 5 users are following.

Good morning, I'm on the second evorel sequi patches and this morning after having a shower it almost peeled off so I had to stick on it a big plaster to keep it in place. I hope it will hold on till Monday when I'm changing it again. I put it on my upper right thigh try to avoid any creases but it is quite difficult.. The patches don't seem to be 100% waterproof as stated on the leaflet. What should I do? Thank you

    Yes they are, I have trouble removing them! It always leaves sticky bits. Apply before you shower to ensure your skin is bone dry and don't use moisturiser in the area you are applying it to.

    Hi there

    i have had the same problem with climera patches i have not been able to restick them a real waste at $30 a pack. Now i put a waterproof dressing on them as soon as i put it on which gives me a week hope this helps😊😊

    Hi. I don't have any trouble with patches staying put. I apply mine to my buttock/hip. If you do this maybe your underwear/swimsuit will help keep it in place.
