[IPp] ok now I'm getting mad



Melissa,

When my son was using the numbing cream we had to same problem.  As soon as 
we quit using the numbing cream it quit happening.  It was just too greasy. 
Sorry I don't have any advice, except that I started putting my son's sets 
in when he was asleep instead of using numbing cream and believe it or not 
he never noticed.  Hope this helps.
