Want a quick fix for irritated skin? Get a bottle of Maalox or Mylanta, don't shake the bottle. Skim the watery bit off the top and dab the thicker mixture on to your skin. Use a hairdryer on it's lowest setting to dry it and put the wafer over the top. The mint flavor is not a good idea tho --- ouch!
