Apply the patch to the skin, pressing firmly round the edges to ensure good adhesion. Write the time of application onto the dressing.
Do not press the centre of the patch. This may squeeze emulsion out under the adhesive.
Press down the edges firmly to avoid leakage.Remove the paper frame. Write the time of application onto the dressing. Make sure that the area of skin to be anaesthetised is clean and dry, e.g. remove any make-up.
