Hey everyone! Well ive been on the patch for a while now but the last 2 weeks I thought it was from stress and stuff because I would have dime-size bumps on my wrist or fingers and it itches so I scratch it and I swell up. I get it on my lips sometimes, but mostly my hands. My mom and sister said it could be an allergic reaction to the patch? Could that be it? But the thing is I dont get them until im at home at night. I told jose I would make an appointment after I asked you all what it could be!

Hey nikki do you ever wear fake jewlery? Cause if I ever do I get the worse rash ever also when I wear a belt with a buckle that touches my stomach I get a rash as well I you would be allergic to the patch you probably would have noticed since you started wearing it.
