Hi Ruthie,

I don’t have the whole body itching from the patches but I do get the itching around the edges of the patches from time to time. One thing that has helped me for the itching around my patches is to clean the spot with an adhesive remover to make sure I get all the old adhesive off. Now with that being said you have to make sure you wash the area really good with soap and water to get all the adhesive remover off or the patches will not stick.

I have one brand of adhesive remover that I have used for years that works really good. I was buying them from our local medical supply store but found that I can get double the amount from Amazon for the same price and of course when I shop on Amazon they give a donation to The Pain Community so it is a win – win for both of us.

I will do some research and see if I can find anything else that may be helpful for you.

take care,
