 I had the exact same thing happen once but I don't remember if it was a QS or
Sil. I had a bruise all around the tape. It was not redness/irritation,
definitely a bruise. It only happened once and was very odd. When I removed the
set I was expecting the whole area to be bruised but it was just an outline.
