injured thumb - gig tonight - help?

ok guys, i tried googling it but no luck. figured someone here would know. probably in the wrong forum - just let me know if i am

basically i took the skin above the thumbnail of my strumming hand off on my e string while practising, it sprayed blood everywhere (sidenote: any ideas on how to get blood off strings?) and now is very sore and painful to play. also it catches a lot which is only doing more damage.

i'd rather not use a pick, i know that this is the obvious answer but i'm more comfortable without one

so any ideas on how to protect the wound when i play tonight? i'd rather not spray the front row with blood.

cheers.

superglue over it, make the skin hard.

or pick.
to remove blood from strings: change strings.

Well, technically it could be done, but only in the same way that you could change a cat into a hamburger. It's an unpleasant process, and nobody is happy with the result.

you could try wrapping plaster tape round it, might hold a bit firmer than just a plaster if that wouldn't interfere with your playing
