    What causes them? I can't say I've ever had them until recently. I had one a few weeks ago and one I just noticed on my thumb today. Damn thing was too deep to rip the skin so I had to steal a kids safety pin from his hat(why his hat had a safety pin I have no idea, self protection?) and pop it.

    Yes thats it, you pinch your finger or somthig, and you hit a blood vessel and nick it, makes a blood blister

    Just puncture it and relieve the pressure. Don't tear the skin it acts like a band-aid. My treatment for normal blisters was to drain the clear fluid and inject iodine to dry it out and toughen the skin, hurts like hell but works. Would not do it with a blood blister though.

    thats a good idea on the blisters thing. Steve sent me something saying not to pop them due to the possibility of infection, I guess its a point, but I wash my hand every night and morning with anti-bacterial soap(then clean my piercing), and my arms/hands are covered in deep cuts, burns, scars, whatever, I figure your body can't build an immunity if you don't give it a chance.

    Don't "pop" them, that's akin to tearing, much more painful and messy

    Break out the razors

    What's worse is blood pooled under finger or toe nails, I had to drill through a nail once, it wasn't pleasant

    I used a safety pin, I have some nice 27 ga. needles that are perfect for that stuff too.

    Burning the skin under you fingernails is worse than that. Feels like there is massive painful pressure under your nails, so you drill them out like you said, and get no relief :mad:

    That's a little bloody....


    I was watching that and the song I was playing before that meshed perfectly with the trailer...even though the song is totally wrong for the subject, unless you look at it from a psychotic point of view. The Album Leaf - Wander.

    Popping = bad idea. I don't pop mine and they eventually push themselves out as your skin gets replaced.

    speaking of i have both, 2 blisters on my left hand, and a smashed right thumb nail.... I was making those quick release hinge pins for the k5, but didn't have a sawzall but i thought "hey my bolt cutters should do the trick, they worked but bent the pin so it wouldn't come out of the hinge so i had to cut each pin a couple times, then decided to drill out the hole a little bigger so i could use the bigger bushings that were made out of thicker metal, the little brass ones bent when i put them in the door, long story short, i pinched my hand with some plyers when holding the pin, The thumb actually happened 3 weeks ago taking apart a skate board quarter pipe made out of wood... I'm just letting it grow out..[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    If you or someone you know has the Sundance channel, they're playing it almost nightly on there

    Its pretty decent, I'd put it on the same noir black comedy level as pulp fiction

    The dub is hilarious though, they must have got a good deal on british voice actors

    Japanese yakuza, british accents
