My body has decided to rebel against the nicotine patches now – 5 friggin weeks in and I all of a sudden start getting a massive red itchy rash under the patch? I put one on, noticed when I went to replace it after 24 hrs that there was a bit of a rash under where the patch was, so I waited 24 hrs and then put a new one on the opposite arm. Within 12 hrs it was all welted up and itchier than %^$#! I took it off, and it’s been over 36 hrs now and it’s still red and itchy! Agghhh!! Sometimes I just want to scream at my body “I’m trying to do good things for you!! Stop being so stupid and rebellious!” and then go kick something or steal some kids candy or something.
