If you've worn the patch for over 6 hours and it hasn't absorbed anything, it can mean a few things:
- The pimple does not have fluid in it so it's not "ripe" yet or not the right type of pimple
- The pimple does have fluid in it but the fluid is deep in the pore. The patch can help coax the fluid to the surface and then coax it out but this will take 1-3 days depending on how deep the fluid is.
- The patch needs easier access to the fluid. Some customers have seen that popping or pricking the pimple can help draw out the fluid faster onto the patch.
We advise you wear the patch for 6-8 hours or until the patch has absorbed the gunk out, whichever is first. If after 6-8 hours, the patch has not absorbed anything, please see above. Let us know if you have other questions!
