AbstractA flexible, liquid-absorbing, adhesive skin reservoir includes a backing element and a substrate attached to the backing element. The substrate comprises a homogeneous, hydrophilic, stable matrix including a solid phase formed of a synthetic polymer and/or a long chain natural or synthetic polysaccharide, or a combination thereof. The liquid phase of the matrix consists of water, hydric alcohol, carbohydrates and/or proteins in an aqueous solution, and/or a combination thereof. The matrix contains a medicament therein for release to the affected areas for local and/or systemic medicinal effect.
