Remove Contact Stresses/Strains from a Plot

I ran an analysis with frictionless contact to simulate a load that changes direction. I don't need the contact stresses and strains. Is there a way to remove theses? Is there a work around?

The main issue is the max stress/max strain occurs at the contact points. I don't care about the stresses at the contact points. The part will yield a little at the contact points but this is not important. What is important is the stresses caused away from the contact points. I need to know the max at of all locations except the contact area!
