Wipe the area with a clean dry tissue. Peel off the plastic backing of the skin patch, trying not to touch the adhesive side with your hands. Do not cut the patches. Firmly apply to the area you have chosen, with the metallic side of the patch to the skin and the tan- colored side showing. Once firmly in place, wash your hands well with soap and water. Remove the disc after 3 days, or sooner if you no longer need it. If you need to use a second patch after you remove the first, place it behind the other ear.
