If an area is missed, re-apply to that area only after the first application has dried (30 seconds). If applying to an area with skin folds or other skin-to-skin contact, make sure that skin contact areas are separated and allow the coating to thoroughly dry before returning to normal positions. Re-application is recommended at least every 48 to 72 hours (under normal use) or more frequently if needed.
