Q. What can I do if the adhesive patches aren't sticky enough?
A. Again, every child’s skin is different and different climates can affect the adhesive in the patches. Particularly humid weather can make the patches less sticky – particularly because the child is more likely to perspire, therefore causing the adhesive to break down. It’s obviously pretty hard to control the weather so try to make sure your child’s skin is clean, with no soaps or moisturisers, and try to patch when the child is not doing physical activity (and therefore sweating). Patching whilst in air-conditioning in summer is a great option.
Also, when you’re applying the patch, ensure that you run your finger around the edge of the patch on the adhesive as this will activate it and ensure it sticks nicely to the skin.
