[IPk] How long do you keep it in



I can hear Rita already, only 3 days max and I'm sure she or John H will

Also, does anyone find the glue doesnt stick to there skin, i have tried
using skin prep with still no luck, at the moment I am having to change the
set ever day or so as it keeps coming unstuck.
