How do I apply the patch?
It is best to apply the patch immediately after a shower when the skin is completely dry and you have not yet applied any deodorant or cream. You determine the correct position to stick the patch by putting one hand on your hip and placing the other hand under your arm to measure 3 fingers width under the armpit. The patch should be stuck here, on the side of the chest. Please note that the skin should not be stretched, so it is advisable to leave the hand on the hip during application.
