Do what Study_Girl 7 said, or press on your skin as you are taking it off. The pain is from your skin being stretched so by pressing on your skun as you take the plaster off you get (slightly) less pain.

I'd go into pain theory if I had more time :laugh:

Good tip.Now I won't have to worry about that anymore,now I can worry about if it will scab up or not.

Yeah honestly use lukewarm water, that's the best solution so that it peels itself a bit at least.
