Am I doing something wrong as the patches were either just a little wet or totally dry?
The patches may vary in the quantity of fluid seen after use from person to person, however do not forget that the patches work in 2 ways. The first is by stimulating blood flow to the area which can prompt healing. The second is by removing excess fluid. This is the reason why it’s best to focus on how the actual area is improving instead of the visual appearance of the patches.
It’s important the patches maintain good contact with the skin and should be applied over the affected area just before going to sleep, or they may become loose and lose contact with the skin. Also strolling around a lot before bed can make the powder collect at the base of the patch. It is important that the powder is uniformly spread before applying the patch.
Some individuals have reported that the patches work better when a fine mist of water is sprayed directly on to the skin first prior to the patch being applied as this helps the patch to maintain good contact (It is important to properly dry the area of skin where the adhesive is to be applied if you use this approach).
