I have a sensitivity to Latex and the patch makes the site extremely itchy. I have tried using an inhaler sprayed on the site before placing the patch but most weeks it doesn't work and often tear off the patch because of extreme itchiness/pain. Any latex free patches for the future? Any other similar cases?
