Tenative lift off
After 10+ frustrating and occasionally painful weeks I seem to have finally turned the corner, and I'm on my way to beating the CB into submission. More likely, it's the other way around and my body is finally starting to adapt, but I can repeatedly wear the device for 48 hours without any sores or nasty welts appearing. I can't say there's been a magic bullet, except perhaps avoiding Cyclopentasiloxane (I've settled on plain old baby oil, used sparingly). I've done things like sanding down the square edges of the A-ring, and I'm sure that helped, but I think it mostly comes down to persistence: you just have to wear it as much as you can.
