Help Patients Asking About Water Exposure and Topical or Transdermal Meds

Can patients swim, shower, or bathe after applying transdermal patches or topical meds?

It depends.

Gather info from the patient...such as the med name, when they use the med, and type of water exposure (pool, hot tub, etc). Your pharmacist will need this info to counsel the patient.
