I also had questionable results but my example was with cream for 2h.
Plus heard similar stories a few times, that’s why I asked…
I was told to try 3-4 hours.
First I was skeptic: saying yeah, the effect will fade away if I leave it on for too long.
But screw it! Can’t be any worse than having no effect like b4.
I leave it on for +3hours since then and it works a charm.
The patch really doesn’t work well at all if there is any break in the adhesive seal around the perimeter. It dries out quickly if there is any break at all, so putting on the finger is really not likely to work well at all.
Also the finger has DEEP nerves… well deeper than the skin… no patch or topical is going to get anywhere close to numbing the entire depth of a finger.
It will be significantly better than a patch that isn’t 100% sealed to the skin for sure… I would give it a full 3-4 hours and use an XL size (oversized) nitrile glove overtop to just hold a shitload of gel to your finger for the duration. The glove is mostly to avoid the massive mess of having gel on your fingers that long and trying not to touch things… but it also helps that it will be holding a large quantity for your finger to absorb.
I can’t say it will be painless… in fact, I don’t know what affect it might have on a full fingertip… but if you give it enough time and proper occlusion it will significantly reduce pain. It may even block it completely for a finger, but I just don’t have any data on this at this time.
only for allergies really. latex gloves (and sometimes nitrile) can also be “dusted” to make them easier to put on with slightly over-moisturized hands… and man, if you are allergic to latex… you will definitely have a serious problem if you’ve put on a dusted glove. other than that, it should not matter.
It healed off DAMN fine, and is not that much in the way as you would think
The Position is more off to the side so its fine when doing work like shoveling graves, masturbating, and chopping “stuff” of with axes.
but i also reallised how fucking spot on it is! even a milimeter in the wrong direction would have been really bad^
So im fckng happy with it, but still changing my mind every day or so if i want to install the titan in another finger or -p0
