you cut a hole the size of the blister in the moleskin and place it on preventing any more friction while allowing the blister to breath and heal

2017-07-24 22:45:11 UTC  

@Louis Loire - NY that's something I never even considered for my bag. Mole skin.

Don't freak out about it, I have had em popped and have had other horrifying things open to infection. Just clean it about twice a day, especially when you come home. @StrawberryArmada

2017-07-24 23:08:06 UTC  

Just soap and water?

2017-07-24 23:08:45 UTC  

Yeah it's what I most of the time use.

2017-07-24 23:08:52 UTC  

Neosporin too if you got it.

2017-07-24 23:09:12 UTC  

just be a man and use alcohol or witch hazel

2017-07-24 23:09:41 UTC  

don't worry about it but blisters on the back of your heel can get infected easily

2017-07-24 23:13:53 UTC  

Or that.

2017-07-25 01:07:46 UTC  

Once blister open the pocket is a site for infection. Usually want to debride extra skin, keep wound dry and clean

2017-07-25 01:08:46 UTC  

No reason to use alcohol over less painful peroxide

2017-07-25 01:09:09 UTC  

I'd just use that once, then soap and water after

Any good remedy for cauliflower ear? Just ice?

@Deleted User if I remember correctly you can drain it before it solidifies or whatever tf happens but Google how to before you take my word for it. Mileage may vary.

2017-07-30 20:30:22 UTC  

Dean lister has a great video in how to drain it on YouTube bro... @Deleted User

Anyone here know anything about improvised antibiotics? Wanting some for my bug out/medical kit. I guess I could throw In some used ones the next time I get a script but I've heard fish tank antibotixs are similar to cypro and safe for human consumption

2017-08-11 01:46:35 UTC  

@Deleted User yes actually fish antibiotics are the same as the ones they give to mammals. Just make sure you take a high enough dose for long enough. An infection coming back is bad news bears.

@Placidseven - MO#5546 👍🏻

2017-08-14 21:46:39 UTC  

@Deleted User also try your local farmers coop

2017-08-14 21:49:20 UTC  

Who can put me in the medic lessons thread?

2017-08-14 21:49:51 UTC  

I was a corpsman, does that count lol

2017-08-14 21:58:42 UTC  

@Deleted User only the moderators can post in the lessons threads

2017-08-14 22:00:26 UTC  

Can we get some CPR stuff posted in there? One of the better places to start. @Brandon Ironside- ND

CPR is very basic just YouTube red cross CPR if you dont break a rib your doing it wrong

2017-08-14 22:07:44 UTC  

I will post how to do the head tilt chin lift for rescure breathing and BVM operation

2017-08-14 22:09:14 UTC  

Idk if I'd post the rib breaking stuff lol. That's how you get people pushing to the spine. 2 inches, you might crack a rib or 2, just be weary of that. Depth is 1/3 for kiddos.

2017-08-14 22:12:01 UTC  

@Deleted User 👍🏻

2017-08-14 22:28:10 UTC  

Reminder that everyone who is a medic and has something to share should. Just because youre not a mod at this stage does not mean we don't want to hear from you. That goes for every subject.

2017-08-14 22:39:27 UTC  

Ive done CPR many time on real patients you will almost always break a rib

2017-08-14 22:40:11 UTC  

Breaking a rib is minor compared to dying of an infarction
