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

2017-07-30 18:25:27 UTC  

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

2017-08-14 22:41:46 UTC  

So have I, work on an ambulance full time, hospital part. I've seen plenty of newbys to CPR try purposely to break ribs because someone told them they have to.

2017-08-14 22:42:13 UTC  

Then they need to retake anatomy
