... Along these lines, Nasonex or any other prescription nasal spray keeps your skin from breaking out. The downside to using cortisone or a nasal spray is that it thins your skin. I just spray it all over the area where I'm going to put the patch - if it were possible, I would just put it where the adhesive will go, but I'm never that accurate. Also, sometimes the whole area... (17 replies)
