Nicotine and Fasting
Can I use Nicotine Patch during Fast?
I just joint Islamic group Perth
Answer will be really appreciated
The nicotine patch is like a sticker which releases nicotine in the form of a gel which is absorbed by the skin.Whatever enters the body through the skin, such as creams, ointments and skin patches containing medicines or chemicals
do not break the fast.
Having said that one should try and free himself from being addicted to nicotine.
