if you use estrogen patches and are annoyed at the residue that your clothes fabric and the adhesive leaves on your skin, I've got two suggestions for you:

-> use IV dressings overtop of the patches. The dressing adhesive doesn't leave that residue behind
-> use baby oil and a small cotton ball and some elbow grease to get rid of the residue that is already there


@SuricrasiaOnline This may be what you're referring to, but Tegaderm (yes, it's a brand name, sorry) is relatively inexpensive in quantity and reportedly great at keeping medicine patches on skin. Stays on for a week or so, showerproof, etc.

(And deals with flexing, etc. great: just took one off my knee a couple days ago, had been on for about a week.)
