    How does that work? - the CO2 would react with his sweat (wicked away into his under suit) to form carbonic acid, which in turn would react with said under suit (dissolve it), both reactions giving heat of reaction and his sore skin was hypersensitised to heat.....

    My undersuits seems to dissolve quite happily on their own... I once thought I was having skin bends which suddenly stopped after I washed my thermals.
