Precautions

Do not apply the patch directly to damaged skin. This includes scrapes, cuts, burns, sunburn, or any type of irritation or rash on the skin. Apply the patch with minimum stretching to prevent abrasion due to skin pulling. If you feel any discomfort or irritation, remove the patch immediately.

Preparing the skin

Be sure the skin where you will apply the patch is clean, dry and free from any chemicals like lotions and oils. Wipe the area with alcohol, hand sanitizer, or pre-taping products to ensure cleanliness before the patch application.

If the skin area has excess body hair, please try to cut or clip the hair close to the skin for the best results. This also makes patch removal less painful. Please note-thin or small amounts of body hair will not interfere with the effectiveness or adhesion of the patch.

Wearing the patch

After application, make sure to prevent clothing, equipment, or other materials from rubbing on the ends of the patch. To dry a wet patch, pat gently with a towel to absorb moisture. Do not use a hair dryer. The adhesive is heat activated and it may become difficult to remove. If some ends begin to peel or fray you can trim with scissors to prevent further peeling.

Removing the Patch

To remove the patch, pull in the direction of hair growth. To reduce discomfort, press and hold the skin at the end of the taped area while gently peeling the patch back. A patch that is still strongly adhering to the skin may be loosened by soaking it with baby oil, vegetable oil, or Perform Lift Adhesive Remover for several minutes before attempting to remove again.

Skin Irritation

My CGM Patch is made of high quality cotton with a hypoallergenic acrylic adhesive. It contains no latex or medications, reducing the likelihood of skin irritation. Individuals with extremely sensitive skin, however, may still experience a light rash, itching or irritation. In addition, the following products have been reported to minimize skin irritation when applied and allowed to dry prior to patch application: Benadryl® Itch Stopping Gel, alcohol swabs or Skin-TacTM Adhesive Barrier Wipes.
