How to remove HRT patches

Just been prescribed HRT patches and want to know more about how to remove them effectively? Or perhaps you have been using patches for a while and would like some advice.

In this short video, Perimenopause and Menopause Yoga Teacher and resident balance expert, Claudia Brown – who uses patches herself – takes you through what you need to know.

And it’s worth pointing out if you still find it difficult to remove the adhesive with Claudia’s tips, or are irritating your skin too much by rubbing, you can also buy adhesive removal products such as wipes of sprays which are designed for gently removing medical dressings and their sticky residue.

Note: this video is not intended as a substitute for advice given by your own healthcare team, and you should consult your own healthcare team for individualised advice.
