You can try Saran Wrap around your neck under the gasket too.

cortisone cream

Saran wrap? sounds interesting, but not real pleasant, but couldn't be too much worse than gaskets already feel to begin with I suppose. I've been using an old neck gaiter, that does help, it still gets red if I'm in the water for awhile, but not as much of a full on rash reaction, which is a BIG improvement from before. I asked my dermatologist, she said it's not likely for it to spread or provoke an internal allergic response. She suggested an cortisone cream before &/or after paddling. She said using a barrier like vasoline would help, but don't oily materials/lotions break down the latex in gaskets? Thanks for the feedback ya'll!
