Default the Patch - can it go anywhere?

I am planning on wearing the Patch on my upcoming 11 day cruise however I never realized it was so large. I know they suggest putting it behind your ear but my hair is very short and it is very obvious. Can the patch be applied say under the shirt or even on your wrists or neck below the shirt line? Please advise anyone. Thanks

Good question. I believe it has to go behind your ear. See if the patch has a website. You should either find the answer there, or be able to e-mail them your question.

Actually the patch is designed ONLY to be placed behind the ear. Medication is transferred from the patch directly to the balance centers of the inner ear. Placing the patch in other places would have no beneficial effect.
On one cruise my son thought that the patch was a new fashion statement (g). Maybe the sea bands or bonine would be a more attractive alternative for you. Labe Young, RPH
