I bet there are all sorts of ways to treat minor injuries while
I recently burned the middle finger of my right hand. A very large
blister developed. Breaking the blister is a no no. I drained the
blister by running a needle into the good skin near the blister then
running it into the inside of the blister.
To protect the blister I cut off a 1 inch tip of a rubber glove and
placed it on my finger. The medical tape I had would not hold while
I was cutting stones so what to do?
The solution was to tape the rubber finger tip to the finger with
electrical tape. Electrical tape is water proof and sticks well to
the rubber tip and the finger. The rubber tip should be pulled
tightly on the finger.
I wrapped the tape so that the end was on top of the finger not on
the pad of the finger.
That technique worked well when I cut a small part of the tip of my
left thumb. After the bleeding stopped I added a dab of Neosporin,
slid on the rugger tip and taped it with electrical tape.
Works very well.
