so l have a plastic allergy.. if plastic is touching my skin or is in extremely close proximity of my skin for several hours I have a reaction . I've had this issue since I was younger and it's become like second nature to avoid all things plastic that could cause me to breakout without even a thought.
so I bought a rift a few months ago because I had to have it! . I'm a casual player, a couple/ few hours every other day.I have had no problems with pain or swelling! But in the past couple of days I've been using medium, time flys by when drawing so 3 hrs only feels like an hour. Without realizing that in the past couple of days I've spend over many hours wearing the headset . Last night my face started hurting some while playing but I brushed it off as a blocked pore causing pressure pain. Kept on drawing. I eventually took off the headset and notice straight away my line of sight was off due swelling under my eye.. looked in a mirror and I was swollen pretty good under my left eye while I only had some mild swelling under my right. I ice packed my eyes which brought the swelling down . I still have it today just not as bad. Another day or 2 and it should clear up, as long as I don't rift lol.
it actually never dawned on me to check out what materials where in the rift , I wanted one so much! Lol. I honestly don't care, still don't really... I love my rift... swollen eyes and blurred vision won't stop me from playing !! . But now that I know I will breakout if on it for to long in one sitting without taking necessary breaks. I can easily avoid this from happening again! ... this isnt oculus's fault... it's completely mine and my stupid allergies! I'm actually more upset I have to take a break from my rift over the swelling lol.
im wondering if there's other face plates that could help me avoid this or some sort of cover so material that contains plastic is unable to cause my skin to react:
