Basketball Injury - Cut to eyelid

My daughter recently received 7 stitches to her eyelid due to a cut from an elbow at a basketball game. The stitches have since been removed and the doctor recommended keeping the area taped with (2) 1/4" x 1" strips of closure tape. After a week, she applies the tape for practice, but when she starts to sweat, the tape comes off. Is there any other type of tape that would be recommended to cover the area other than the closure tape?
