    OK, 2 blisters.

    One on my pointer, other on my birdie...

    My friend is letting me sit in on a few songs at his gig tonight, so I need to do something about these blisters.

    So, tell me how to get rid of the evil things!

    Pop them, and super glue them?

    Leave them and just play anyways?

    I can sorta play with them... but I can't go very fast at all.

    This might belong in misc... but what do I know...

    I was considering that, but my step-dad just cleaned the power saw, and he would get mad if I got it all dirty.

    Its all good now.

    I just got a sewing needle and popped them.

    It was sorta fun...
     

  6. BAD IDEA!!!!! Those suckers will get infected and its just gonna hurt alot more than if you didnt pop them. Trust me I know from experience...

    This is what they do in the army (unless the media lies):

    Line a needle with cotton (I thik they may be taght how to sew before and blister encounters just incase).
    Pop the blister at its peak and go in and back out.
    Loop the coton and tie a small know, cut from the needle.

    This will allow cacka to drain out apparantly.

    My suggestion woul'd be to put a plaster over it if that helps.

    Oooh, I thought you meant to pop it at first :p
