Maybe the things described in the novel research entitled "The Efficacy of Kinesio Taping on Lymphedema Following Head and Neck Cancer Therapy" can help you.

Thank you, I found that paper too, and summarised it in the latest Massage Message

I am glad the taping worked well for the lymphoedema of your head and neck. The good thing is that you can apply it yourself, and that you can use it at night, when the oedema can get worse due to lying down.
Usually the advice is to wear the tape 3-5 days (or even only over night), and then take it off carefully. Then give the skin a break for a day or so. If you find you are starting to get a reaction to it, such as itching or red skin, take the tape off immediately. Usually one can find another brand with a different glue, or Kinesio sensitive, so that you have an alternative. If you are worried you can try the tape on a neutral area, such as the inside of your arm.
Of cause you must take the tape off carefully, i.e.hold the skin and then pull it off. Also, moisturise plenty, no sunburn, etc, all the advice you should have had regarding skin care for lymphoedema.
