The drug in the patch gets absorbed the best in areas where there's less fat. Most people put it on their upper arms, their chest or their back. You shouldn't have any cuts, burns or scarring where the patch goes on. If the area is very hairy you should probably clip back the hair a bit. 

 

Good luck with it!
