so i was playing bass yesterday. some slapping and i was going intense for like 15 minutes non stop. at the end i had a little ring on my right index finger, but i didnt think anything of it. throughout the day, it got bigger and bigger, probably about a half a cm tall right now, and a little more than a cm wide. its full of fluid. so do i pop it? or do just let it chill. im trying to get my pop fingers callused. usually this doesn't happen

so pop it (no pun intended)? or let it be.

Pop it, collect the juices in a small jar and mail them to me.

Pop it with fire fool! It's the only way to stop it infecting your pen0rz when you fap to azn pr0nz.

I would pop it because I have odd compulsions to do with my skin. But you really really mustn't, it's bad for your skin to do that when it's trying to heal itself.

Popping it would be a bad idea.

But if you must, I suggest you do it epically (aka, with this):

Don't pop it....unless it gets alot bigger, then slap someone in the face with it
#18
pop it by putting a sterilised pin (heat some water in a kettle) through it until it comes out the otherside, then quickly pull out.. blister juice should come out and it'll be all good.. I do it whenever I get one and i'm fine

EDIT: P.S. you're so awesome, you went for 15 minutes NON-STOP, wow.



stop trying to act like your tougher than anyone else

i just wanna know what i should do so i don't **** up my finger.

and i was just saying i went 15 minutes, because 15 minutes of slapping 16th notes at around 90-100 bpm will **** up your finger.

The best thing to do is take a sterile needle (light a match under the tip for a few seconds) and poke it. Drain out the fluid and then let it heal on its own. The worst thing to do is peel off all the skin.
#21
Try poking a tiny hole in it and pressing it slightly to drain it but be careful because if it tears the underside hurts like hell

Funny story, my friend tore off a blister and me and my other friend were at his house and he poured salt in it

Haha, I'm not trying to make out I'm tougher than anyone else.

But I know that most bassists on this site don't make a thread everytime they get a tiny blister. Get over it.

Fair enough. I just didn't see the need for the stuff about popping for 15 minutes non-stop, you coulda worded it a bit better.

Sorry, I'm in a pissy mood

pop it, then after that the skin gets tougher
also its easier to get injured like that when you have sweaty hands. you should wash your hands more often.

Pop it, you know you want to.
Actualy I used to find that they healed much quicker If I popped them.
Once it's healed, you need to toughen your fingers up, one method is to piss on them, which actualy works, I'm not sure how but there's apparently some chemical in urine that makes your skin more leathery.
Another method is to soak your fingers in white spirit regularly (once a day) for about half an hour.

Damn it I told you to put it in a jar!

Wasting it on your fucking shirt.

Yeah but send the paper towel too.

You could leave it on but it might dry out in the post which would be a bit silly. I would like the towel though, they are handy for wiping things up and creating little paper armies. The armies are a bit gay though, bad in wet terrain and snow, which is a problem in a war.

Maybe the blister milk would give them the edge in all-terrain warfare.
