I have been using the Fentanyl patch for about 4 months now. Teva brand works fine except for past month i have had itching and redness at site where i apply it. It now looks like i have square-like scars on my upper arms.
Has anybody experiences this? Idk what to do because the pain mgt is good.
But i cant be having my skin scared up with red whelts that are not going away. I have tried the Mylan brand and it doesn't seem to work at all for pain mgt.
Any info is greatly appreciated. Thanks
I can only use the Mylan brand, because I get a horrible reaction from all the others, I get blisters and a red itchy square, the Mylan are not as good for pain relief, my doctor had to raise my dose and I change them every 48 hours and they work much better than the others. It just took a little getting used to to figure out the right dose, but it is great now.

Yes, that is my exact problem. I switch back and forth on my upper arms, change areas there also but it seems i am running out of areas due to the squares still being there. I am gonna try the nose spray thing prior to putting patch on that i have read. Hopefully it will work.
Thanks for info guys.
The only patch i can use is the mylan brand my doctor has to write word for word mylan and no subs for it on the script

as it is my shoulder is bruised from use,
Although I have to go through extreme measures to keep it on, use sticky tens wipe also heat it afterward with blow dryer to help it adhere also apply pressure.

The other brands did not stick and also I started to experience skin breakdown.

Try alternating sites and using some sinc to the area after, may also be reacting to the adhesive try adhesive remover to site or baby oil after removing.
