I did as well. I bought a sport band from Amazon and that was more comfortable than the stock band but that soon burned me as well. Now I'm using a mesh metal band that I got on Amazon and no more burn. It finally healed. The "clasp" is magnetic and the band is just super comfortable. The only problem is the edges snag certain materials. I think a metal band may be better for you. I even tried a leather one and still had irritation. Everyone is different with the levels of sensitivity to their skin.
