Believe it or not I actually have done a search and read the 10,234 threads about blisters, but couldn't come up with an answer for my question. I played bass for many years, but I took a break for a while and drummed for a band for a few years. Anyway, I'm back to payling bass and in the meantime, I lost all my callouses. So I started playing again last week and of course I got some pretty nice blisters. Anyway, I don't have much of a chance to just let it heal as I'm going to be playing a lot in the next few weeks. Here's my deal: I popped the blister and now it's like a white piece of skin on the top of my finger. I'm dying to just rip it off, but I know that that's bad for it. But it seems like it's not going to heal if I just leave it alone. It's like a separate piece of skin and is not going away. Should I just rip it off and start building a calous or should I play with it the way it is and hope it turns into a calous (which it doesn't seem like it will because it's been like this for over a week). Thanks guys and sorry for the long post.
