You don't have to run it for that long, just a minute or so once it's running hot.
I haven't had PI for a few years because I live in the city now (and somehow it didn't get me when I was putting up a fence for my sister), but as a kid after whipping the weeds along the fenceline once or twice a year I'd get one side of an entire shin or lower arm oozing & itchy - so gross and SO itchy - so I have plenty of experience.
