Using nicotine patch. Why is it sill bright pink there?

hi Im currently using the nicotine patch , it has been 5 days since the first patch was applied then removed after the 24 hours. My skin where each patch has been us still a very bright pink a little bumpy and itchy. does this mean i am having an allergic reaction and should i stop using the patches? Or is this a normal reaction.

this is most probably a hypersensitivity due to the patch, may be either nicotine or gum material used in it. you may go for alternative route for nicotine replacement therapy after consultation.
