I've been home from hospital 4 days and still cannot get the adhesive from heart monitor off my skin. Is there an easy way?
Hi @zanne welcome to Connect. It must be so frustrating having the adhesive not go away.
I wanted to share this article from the American Nurse Association in hopes that the information it contains could help you remove the adhesive: https://www.americannursetoday.com/adhesive-removal/
Hi yes after a long hospital stay there can be alot. But i remember one of the drs or nurses not sure which brought in some adhesive removal pads and they worked after a few tries.
Cooking oil usually works.
Try coconut oil!
