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
@Louis Loire - NY that's something I never even considered for my bag. Mole skin.
"Don't pop it"

Reeses in Pieces
Rest in pepperoni
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
Just soap and water?
Yeah it's what I most of the time use.
Neosporin too if you got it.
just be a man and use alcohol or witch hazel
don't worry about it but blisters on the back of your heel can get infected easily
Once blister open the pocket is a site for infection. Usually want to debride extra skin, keep wound dry and clean
No reason to use alcohol over less painful peroxide
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.
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
@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.

Who can put me in the medic lessons thread?
I was a corpsman, does that count lol
@Deleted User only the moderators can post in the lessons threads
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
I will post how to do the head tilt chin lift for rescure breathing and BVM operation
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.
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.
Ive done CPR many time on real patients you will almost always break a rib
Breaking a rib is minor compared to dying of an infarction
