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

StrawberryArmada 2017-07-24 23:08:06  

Just soap and water?

Nova 2017-07-24 23:08:45  

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

Nova 2017-07-24 23:08:52  

Neosporin too if you got it.

Louis Loire - NY 2017-07-24 23:09:12  

just be a man and use alcohol or witch hazel

Louis Loire - NY 2017-07-24 23:09:41  

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

Nova 2017-07-24 23:13:53  

Or that.

Deleted User 2017-07-25 01:07:46  

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

Deleted User 2017-07-25 01:08:46  

No reason to use alcohol over less painful peroxide

Deleted User 2017-07-25 01:09:09  

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

Deleted User 2017-07-30 18:25:27  

Any good remedy for cauliflower ear? Just ice?

Dan iiii 2017-07-30 19:38:27  

@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.

Deleted User 2017-07-30 20:30:22  

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

Placidseven - MO 2017-08-11 01:46:35  

@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.

Deleted User 2017-08-11 12:30:17  

@Placidseven - MO#5546 👍🏻

Deleted User 2017-08-14 21:46:39  

@Deleted User also try your local farmers coop

Who can put me in the medic lessons thread?

SigmundV (KyleC.)-IN 2017-08-14 21:49:51  

I was a corpsman, does that count lol

Brandon Ironside- ND 2017-08-14 21:58:42  

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

Deleted User 2017-08-14 22:00:26  

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

Louis Loire - NY 2017-08-14 22:07:44  

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

Deleted User 2017-08-14 22:09:14  

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.

Deleted User 2017-08-14 22:12:01  

@Deleted User 👍🏻

Deleted User 2017-08-14 22:28:10  

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.

Louis Loire - NY 2017-08-14 22:39:27  

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

Louis Loire - NY 2017-08-14 22:40:11  

Breaking a rib is minor compared to dying of an infarction

Deleted User 2017-08-14 22:41:46  

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.

Louis Loire - NY 2017-08-14 22:42:13  

Then they need to retake anatomy

Louis Loire - NY 2017-08-14 22:42:32  

Amd should be fired
