I had an episode a few years back where i experienced skin issues and open wounds. I used the below product as a body wash on a loofa or a cloth and it kept my wounds clean and helped to heal. Hope your student finds some relief.

This is what I buy for Dude. It's got quick clot, gauze, duct tape, gloves, antiseptic, and a bag for the waste or chest wound. It's $20. He's SAVED two lives with this and the tournequets I stock him with. Medical goes as fast as they can but in those two cases they would not have had enough time.

He also carries small bags of gummy bears, bottled water, and protein bars because the situation has warranted getting food and/or sugar into someone without overloading them.

I’m a woman and while I don’t wear heels often now, I wore them all the time when I was younger. Heels that are too big give me rub blisters. Plus there are band aids now that are amazing for protection. blister protection

They look like the scar "gel" pads you can buy in the first aid/bandaid sections of most stores (I've purchased from Target, Wal-mart, Walgreens, etc). They're a little pricey but reusable and I like to cut them up into tiny pieces to cover individual spots.

u/happybadger · 23 pointsr/SocialistRA

The most important thing about bleed management is being able to identify what kind of leak the person has. Treatment for an arterial/venous/capillary bleed differs. Colour isn't the best indicator because lighting conditions change, what I look for is flow pattern. If it's coming out like a heartbeat or squirting it's arterial and a tourniquet is a good idea. If it's flowing smoothly and there's a lot of it it's probably venous and can probably be controlled with direct pressure. If it's flowing smoothly and there isn't a lot, it's capillary and direct pressure will stop it. For pressure bandages, I like these. If I don't have that, wrap a towel or shirt around your fist and grab/press the wound hard. You can swap it out for something better but that will buy you time and give you something that's easy to remove from the patient before you're ready to move them. If it's something like an abdominal or chest wound where there might be internal injuries, you don't want to be super aggressive but the bleed will kill them faster than most things you could do.

While CATs are decently made, I prefer the SOF-T tourniquet. The velcro on a CAT can be difficult to use when you're drunk on adrenaline and readjusting it becomes difficult as blood coagulates in the hooks and loop. They also have a plastic windlass and I'm very weary of plastic because the goal is to twist as tight as possible. SOF-Ts use a metal one which I have a lot more confidence in.

The quick and easy way to handle a massive bleed is:

  1. Take a step back and look at the wound as a science project. The patient's reaction to their injury will distract you and your first impulse is to calm them down which wastes time, and if it's something like a leg amputation you might have under two minutes to work with. Note how many injuries, where they are, which one is bleeding the most, what type of bleeding is going on.

  2. On extremities with an arterial bleed, jam your knee hard into their groin/armpit to give yourself as much time as possible. This will hurt and they'll hate you for it.

  3. Put three fingers above the highest wound if it's on the upper portion of the extremity or a few inches above the elbow/knee if it's on the lower portion, place the windlass of the tourniquet directly over the artery

  4. After the tourniquet is on, tighten the windlass until they hate you more than the injury and secure it. Wrap the excess strap around the windlass to further protect it from accidental bumps. It should be tight enough that the bleeding is completely stopped and if there's anything left of that limb you shouldn't be able to feel a pulse below it.

  5. I keep a sharpie in my medbag because they're useful in a lot of situations. In this one I mark the time on their forehead or throat if they have a lot of hair. Somewhere that will be completely visible to the surgeon removing the tourniquet so that they know how long the tissue has been without blood.

  6. Unless you know for absolute certain that you've treated their only injury, like you've directly witnessed them dropping the saw on their leg and there is no chance they could have had additional injuries they're not yet aware of or that the injury could have penetrated or if you only have witness accounts, do a blood sweep. Start from the head and try to feel as much of their body as possible, checking your hands for blood every time you reach the end of some piece or feel a change of texture on your fingertips. If you do feel or see blood, remove that piece of clothing and treat secondary injuries before covering them back up. The patient might say they have no secondary injuries but they're also distracted by a more intense pain and they're probably not mentally sound at that moment. Missing one is easy when everything is already saturated.

Just get some 3M Transpore Tape. Several of the commercial nipple protection products out there are just bits of that tape. I've used it for years. As long as you apply it when your skin is dry it's not going anywhere and provides the needed barrier.

Unfortunately they're still a bit spendy, but if you have the training and desire to have a solid first aid kit in your car or workplace, an AED will set you back about $1,200.

However, if you or a family member are at risk of heart attack or cardiac arrest for some reason, or your line of work puts you in contact with people at risk, that's a very worth-while investment.

Keep in mind that I'm speaking generally and I'm not covering all of the options. I don't have a medical background but I have taken a fucking shitload of classes over the years, easily in the 500+ hour range for survival, medical, first response, and trauma classes. I've also taught them many times but mostly at a lower level than what gunshots would be.

My IFAKs are for big bad things, I keep a small first aid pack for boo boos but normally those are rub dirt on it and duct tape it. My real IFAKs are for "oh god, this dude is going to die like right now" kind of wounds.

  1. Never buy anything from eBay.
  2. Never underpay for something. If 99 stores have it for $50 and you find it on sale for $5, it's fake. And fake medical equipment will literally get you killed. Suck it up, pay full price.
  3. Name brands cost more. Name brands also care about their kit and it matters.

    That in mind - all of my IFAKs are homemade. I get supplies in semi-bulk and make 10+ IFAKs because I literally have them everywhere and I rotate out old/expired stuff as needed. I shit you not that I have 4 in my shooting supplies, 1 in my kitchen, 2 in the workshop, 2 in the car, etc. It's not cheap but nothing in life is. If you don't want to be that fanatical about it, getting a kit might be cheaper if you're making one or two.

    All of mine MUST have:

  • Gloves
  • Tape
  • Pressure bandage
  • Clotting agent, normally sponges
  • Gauze
  • EMT shears
  • Tourniquet

    Other stuff like for burns, heatstroke, hypothermia, etc I have in some of my bags but not most of them.

    Cover the basics:

  • Adventure Medical Kit
  • CAT Tourniquet from NAR
  • Israeli Bandage
  • Madison EMT Shear
  • Condor Rip-Away EMT Bag


    There is some arguments that can be made about this setup that I won't get into, these are what I like and trust though. I also normally add some extra gloves, tape, gauze, and QuickClot to each bag.

    The Adventure Medical Kit is cheap and has the core stuff. Nice easy package too, quick to buy a few of them and stash them places if I don't have time to make real bags right then.

    Israeli Bandage is the gold standard for a compression bandage. Watch some YT on how to use one, maybe get to so that you can kill one right off the bat to learn how to use it. Remember - once a bandage is opened, it's use it or lose it. Don't need infections because you used a 5 year old bandage that was stored wrong.

    Madison shears are solid.

    I like CAT style tourniquets and I trust North American Rescue since they're one of the huge massive names in the market. All of mine are NAR CAT tourniquets.

    Condor gets a bad name because of Airsoft kids that wear their stuff all the time, but this bag is really nice. It's fairly cheap, for an IFAK bag, it holds a lot, it's sturdy, and the rip away is really nice. I keep these on the outside of my range bag mostly. The rip away is nice since I can just grab the handle and pull.

    Final note - remember that an IFAK isn't just for you to use. It's also for other people to use on you. Make sure they're marked as an IFAK. Mine are all either bright red with a medical cross on it or at least have a big red medical cross on it in a place that everyone can see.

u/sleeplessaz · 7 pointsr/LifeProTips

Basically get a tin of Bag Balm.

Whenever you are home put a bit on your lips, especially before bed. They will heal up in no time at all. As a bonus you can also use this stuff on other areas of dried skin, such as chapped hands, cracked heels, dry elbows etc. And it is quite a bit cheaper than blistex or the beeswax (which aren't as effective in my experience).

I've been using this stuff for as long as I can remember and other than prescription cortisone cream it is the only thing I've found that will help dry skin heal quickly, and stay healed.

u/peony_chalk · 7 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Ok, so first off, stop digging at your feet with an exact-o knife. That's like using a chainsaw to cut drywall.

If you need to physically remove calluses and dead skin, get the right tool for the job: a pumice stone and/or callus rasp/callus shaver. Use these carefully, especially around areas where you've got cuts.

To help the dry parts of your feet heal, moisturize! Silicone/gel socks feel weird (it's like walking on rubber duckies) and make my feet sweaty, but they've done more to soften gnarly calluses than anything else I've ever tried, especially when used regularly and for several hours at a time. (If you aren't afraid of girly colors, there are plenty of other/cheaper options for these on Amazon.) When you aren't wearing the socks, use a lotion or cream like Working Feet or Cerave Foot Cream. Also, ALWAYS wear socks (just like normal cotton socks) when you aren't wearing the silicon socks.

You can also do a foot soak, either with just water, or water plus some bath salts or foot soak stuff. Silicon scar sheets or hydrocolloid bandages might also help with some of the deeper/open cuts you have.

Combine those for several weeks, probably in the order of foot soak, callus shave, moisturize + socks, then more moisturizer after removing, and I'd think you'd see a lot of improvement.

The babyfoot thing is also a good idea for you, but I wouldn't recommend using that until all of your cuts/open wounds have healed. I think the peels are basically acid, and that's probably very painful if you use it on open cuts.

If all of that fails, go see a doctor or podiatrist. Your feet are super important, and if the above interventions aren't helping, I think that's a strong sign your feet need some professional help to get them healed up.

u/FakeWalterHenry · 7 pointsr/xboxone

Spring for the good stuff. You can't can get 99% isopropyl alcohol some places (like Amazon). Might be able to find it with the first aid stuff, but that's also where you would find the more dilute 70% bottles.

Also, I noticed in Dave's videos he rarely adds flux, just the flux that's built into the multicore solder. I don't know if I'm alone on this one but with flux I always felt the bigger the glob the better the job. Just have to clean it afterwards with the solvent, tissues & brushes.

Really? Think about this, how many AEDs would you need to prominently display on streets, in buildings, and parks, to get the same coverage as one drone?

From article:

> The ambulance drone can get a defibrillator to a patient inside a 12 km2 zone within one minute.

So at any place in this 12 km2 (4.6sq miles) zone an AED would need to be found within a minute or two to have similar coverage. This is would require thousands of AEDs, and even then in a panic situation you might miss it, and you'd have to leave the patient to get it. 1000s of AEDs are vastly more expensive than a drone and clutter the environment. They also need regular checkups to insure they are working properly. One consumer AED is $1000. There is no reason the drone would have to cost much beyond $50,000, but even at $500,000 it would be much cheaper and more effective.

Other advantages this drone has is that the caller gets guidance from a professional who gets eyes on the ground quickly. The drone could also carry EpiPens or emergency inhalers which can save lives.

> The only decent uses of drones I have ever read were: 1. To deliver weed 2. Photography 3. Spying on people 4. Scare birds away (from airports)

u/gabedamien · 6 pointsr/SWORDS

1. First question


The kit you linked looks pretty bad from the reviews alone, I wouldn't buy it. You want one of the kits you'll see on sites like Nihonzashi, or from Bill Rannow, or Bob Benson, or anywhere else you see the same mass-produced kit.

The quality of the kits varies. On the other hand the quality needed also varies according to the blade. A monosteel production blade with a budget finish doesn't need special treatment, whereas an antique in $3000 Juyo-level polish ought to be babied a bit more.

Typically, the oil from the online kits is okay to use — note you want the clear oil, the yellower stuff is not as good. The little hammer used to push out the mekugi is virtually identical everywhere. The cleaning & oiling cloths are ok. The uchiko — absorbent / abrasive powder applied via that "pom pom" thing — is often terrible, causing obvious starburst scuffs; better ones are unfortunately kind of expensive.

The cleaning guide I linked to in the nihontō guide is the traditional method. However, a lot of modern collectors — of both Japanese-style & actual antiques — go a totally different route. I myself use:

  1. 100% Anhydrous Isopropyl Alcohol to remove old oil

  2. Blue "shop towels" to apply alcohol or oil and/or wipe down

  3. Microfiber cloths for the last bit of residual oil / water / whatever

  4. Any plain light mineral oil to protect. The oil is perhaps the most religious topic here, you'll hear people say they only use the traditional chōji abura from Japan (just light mineral oil with a few drops of clove for scent), others will say certain gun oils / collector oils are fine, others even go with sewing machine oil or similar… some collectors in dry environments and who have nicely-made traditional shirasaya even go without any oil at all. Note that this debate exists at the level of preserving valuable antiques, it really doesn't make a difference for production swords so long as you use any kind of mineral oil base. No reason you can't use the traditional stuff on a production sword though.

  5. NO uchiko at all! That's right, a lot of modern collectors say that with alcohol, the point of uchiko (to get rid of the dried oil) is moot at best, and destructive at worst. Uchiko is an abrasive left over from the polishing process. It can help clear up a faded blade but on a fresh polish it can only reduce the clarity.

    2. Second question


    Not going to go into all the details on this but it highly depends what you mean by "safely display". The traditional method is to rest the sword in koshirae (mounts) edge-up, tsuka-left, in a katana kake. Of course this doesn't prevent anybody from picking it up or anything.

There are defibrillators that can be used by anyone. They tell you exactly what to do and automatically determine whether they should deliver a shock or not. There's been a study with sixth-graders who were perfectly able to use one.

Even a cheap one is way, way better than none and it should be affordable for a football club.

I have this problem with oxfords because of my bony ankles lol. I use these half-insoles for an unrelated foot problem and it incidentally solves the ankle rubbing as well (just as you suggested, it just lifts it up a bit higher). I found that full insoles took up too much space in the body of the shoe - I was getting a lot of pressure across the top of my foot because of it.

Another thing that helped was blister bandaids (as opposed to regular bandaids, which I found fell off my ankle really easily because of the way it rubbed/not having adhesive all the way around).
YMMV, hopefully helpful!

u/cbunn81 · 5 pointsr/travel

Generally blisters form when there is too much friction. The presence of water, be it sweat or rainwater, can exacerbate this. Typically the cause is an ill-fitting shoe. In your case, it may well be the socks. So obviously don't use those socks again. But the sock might not be the whole cause. Perhaps there is something about your shoe that your fluffier socks are protecting you from?

Where on your foot is the blister?

Anyway, now that you have the blister, you can deal with it in a couple ways. Generally speaking, you should not drain the blister unless it's already been ruptured naturally. The fluid inside will act as a cushion. And if it does rupture, do not peel away the outside skin. That's going to make it more painful and more susceptible to infection. I recommend some blister bandages. You should be able to find them in a good drug store or supermarket. The brand isn't important. Or look for some tegaderm film, though that might be less likely than the blister bandages.

In the future, remember that prevention is key. Listen to your feet. If you feel a "hot spot" forming somewhere, don't ignore it. Figure out the cause and make necessary changes.

u/whypinto · 5 pointsr/running
u/Emfuser · 5 pointsr/Fencing

Blisters are something where an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Figure out what works for you (multiple socks, pre-taping certain parts of your feet, vaseline, etc) and stick with it.

Tape

  • The most common is plain athletic tape, which is usually the white stuff that is commonly available at drug stores, some retail stores, and sporting goods stores. You generally want to use a layer of foam wrap, which is tape-like but has no adhesive, under the tape itself, particularly where any wound is or where there is hair.

  • There's also strapping tape, which is much like athletic tape but it tends to be a little bit more stiff and more sticky and it's harder to find. You also want to use foam wrap under this. DO NOT put strapping tape directly on a blister without foam wrap in-between. It is sticky enough to rip the blister open when you remove it. I have never seen strapping tape in brick and mortar retail stores here in the southeastern US.

  • Then there's stuff like Co-Flex and knock-offs which is self-adhesive but tends to be a bit lighter duty. Many people confuse this with moleskin. It is pretty skin-friendly and does not need the foam wrap under it. It is naturally elastic and good for light compression.

  • Moleskin can be used preventatively or to protect an existing blister. It comes in patches or sheets with choices of adhesive or non-adhesive and also comes as pre-made bandages for blisters, but those aren't often found retail. There are also non-moleskin products that effectively do the same thing. Like this product.

    Blister Treatment

  • Band-Aid Blister Ampoules are awesome. They're pretty sticky themselves but I would tape over anything on the bottom of the foot or anyplace else that sport-driven rubbing is occurring.

  • Lancing and draining a blister is not something that everyone agrees on. I think the basic HowStuffWorks process is pretty good. It is vital that you cover and protect that drained blister thoroughly. You may have to lay off for a day or two if it's an area that you can't effectively protect from straining the skin and preventing the blister from healing.

You're losing moisture to the cold dry air, and the solution is to seal your skin before you go out with the same thing farmers use on cow teats.

There's several brands, the one around me comes in a little green tin. It's 1/2 Vaseline (which was discovered by oil rig workers, they found it oozing out of pipes and put it on their hands to seal against the North Sea) and 1/2 lanolin (the stuff that makes sheep smell like sheep, and makes their wool weatherproof.)

You can get it from Whole Foods, about a tablespoon for five bucks, or you can find the same thing in vet/farm supplies by the pound. Lasts forever. CVS has it cheaper than Amazon.

Put in on in the morning, really slather it on, just deal with the icky feeling for a few minutes, it'll pass, then when it's all nice and sunk in head out into the wind. If you're in really rough shape, put it on the night before under gloves and then don't wash your hands the next morning. Cotton photographers gloves work great.

Congrats! In the gymnastics world, your first rip is like a rite of passage. We're a little sick that way (ie: "ooh lets see! did it bleed?! oh wow, that's a great one" etc.)

You have 2 options. Let it completely heal the usual cut/scrape way, or let it heal enough to work on it- the gymnast way.

The usual cut/scrape way: use a vitamin e cream. keep a band-aid on it until it's completely healed. Avoid using the hand until it's healed.

The gymnast way: keep the wound open so it dries out during the day. Use a vitamin e cream at night/overnight (some of us go without). Keep letting it dry out. Use NewSkin on it before your next workout (this shit HURTS on a fresh rip and smells weirdly like bananas, but it's downright useful. fair warning.) Put a layer of tape over the hand (basically wrap once around the palm/back of hand). Do your workout. Wash hands after, rinse and repeat process. It will take a couple days, but the rip will heal/harden over just fine.

u/cervical_ripening · 5 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

You can read a little about the science of snail mucin here. The article she links on burns mentions open wound management, so my instinct is that it would help heal fresh burns by providing additional moisture, but I don't think it would have a significant effect on older ones. Some people have reported success with ScarAway silicone sheets, but again, it might just work for newer burns. If it's a mature scar, I think the best bet is probably a fractional laser, or if it's pretty deep, a plastic surgeon. Nothing will really "cure" a burn scar and I wouldn't expect the snail mucin to have a noticeable difference. But hey, I don't think it would hurt?

Try putting surgical tape over the bite (Add some hydrocortisone if you are really sensitive).

You get all the benefits of not scratching without having to exercise any of the will power.

I used to get mosquito bites that would drive me so crazy I couldn't sleep, now I just forget about them.

u/healthyalmonds · 5 pointsr/AskDocs

Staph is killed by chlorhexidine (Hibiclens). Purchasing a Hibiclens body wash, say from Amazon, and washing your armpits and other parts of your body with it may kill the bacteria and get rid of your symptoms.

Best of wishes!

u/kostic · 5 pointsr/bicycling

The best stuff is Tegaderm. I won't use anything else on road rash. Clean the wound well and sterilize with Hibiclens or something similar. Then, cover the whole wound with Tegaderm. In my experience wounds covered in Tegaderm heal much faster as they stay moist. If your wound has a lot of exudate you can use an absorbent bandage at the bottom of the Tegaderm which will soak up any excess discharge and can be disposed of without disturbing the healing process.

u/Synopticz · 4 pointsr/cryonics

Good question. Some thoughts:

  • IMO the most important thing you can do is to help to do and/or fund cryonics research. There hasn't been much done and if you believe in the idea of cryonics, it's the most valuable task. There's probably some serious low-hanging fruit that we're not exploring to make the procedures better. Pretty much every step could be better optimized.

  • If you are at risk of a heart attack and live with at least one other person, you might consider buying a defibrillator. These things are expensive AF but if you have risk factors it might make sense. https://www.amazon.com/Philips-HeartStart-Home-Defibrillator-AED/dp/B00064CED6

  • People have been talking about personal electronic response systems forever. I don't know if there's any actual progress here (maybe someone else can educate me). What I think you'd want is, at a minimum, multiple, redundant sensors. If ALL of them show that you don't have any heart beat for a long enough period of time, they automatically call someone -- or even automatically turn on cameras in the house so that someone can check on you (you'd have to be OK with possible privacy invasions in this case). The false positive rate needs to be low, otherwise alert fatigue will make it useless. That's a high bar.

Discovering New Skin has completely changed the way I feel about mat burn. Works like a charm if you want to train without the risk of getting mat scum inside open abrasions. God damn applying that shit to an open wound is unbelievably painful though.

I think I've posted about this stuff 5 times over the last couple of days, but it is my end-all-be-all HG lip balm.

Don't be deterred by the fact that it's made for cows udders (and it smells slightly medicinal); my mom's been using it since she was a kid and passed the habit on to me. It's the only thing that keeps my lips from cracking and flaking in the winter. I think it may be magical.

u/pariskovalofa · 4 pointsr/starbucks

My hands are wonderful, actually. My knuckles started splitting last month, and I was all "oh fuck no" and dug out my Bag Balm to start applying before I leave home for a shift and usually before bed. It's petroleum jelly, lanolin, and an anti-septic, so basically the unholy love child of Vaseline, lotion, and neosporin. It also doesn't sting to apply if your knuckles have started cracking. Does leave a mild stickiness on your hands, but nothing too bad.

I swear, I'm not a shill. Unless you have lanolin/wool allergies, shit is magic. A tin is only like $10 and lasts me over a year (and I put it on everything from chapped lips to sun burn to blisters to my whole face when it feels dry).

u/worskies · 4 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I've tried the Nexcare bandages and you're totally right. They don't stick very well to your face and I too would find them on my bed in the morning. I bought these, and not only do they stick to your face way better than Nexcare, they are a much better value. They're 4x4, so you have to cut them, but I think I've only gone through two full ones since I bought them last June.

u/notawildflower · 4 pointsr/HumansBeingBros

They suck so much because your pain receptors are exposed without anything to coat and protect them (like blood does for deeper cuts). Putting any sort of ointment on them will almost fully get rid of the pain if you manage to keep it coated, and getting some liquid bandage (Amazon product linked) will protect it from any air or anything else touching the pain receptors and completely remove the pain.

They're expensive, but it made her thick, purple surgical scar fade to a soft, nude color. The texture is better too: much less noticible.

u/golson3 · 4 pointsr/nursing

For immediate lifesaving type stuff, without any tools or resources at your disposal, it seems like you did alright. If you want to assess more quickly in the future, you have to throw out the head to toe assessment that is more in tune with what we do with a stable patient on a med surg unit. In the military, we got some really basic instruction on casualty assessment, focused on what we can do at the scene to help save a life. Identifying injuries and relaying that to first responders is a big one. So is identifying arterial bleeding and doing something about it. The nemonic device we had was "rub both balls slowly for better head".

Responsiveness

Breathing

Bleeding

Shock

Fractures

Burns

Head injury

You might want to keep a BP cuff, CAT (you can probably find them cheaper), a NPA, and some pressure dressings like the Israeli bandage in the trunk of your car. Be able to call out injuries to the paramedics when they get there to save them time. Also, if they have neck/head/back pain, try to get them to minimize movement as much as possible. We used this book when I was in, but they don't let Joe Blow start IVs anymore:

https://www.mtu.edu/arotc/cadet-portal/docs/ISO871_Student_Self_Study.pdf

ETA: look for stuff you can do something about, in addition for information to relay. If you see copious bleeding, get pressure on it or apply a tourniquet (if on a limb). If their face is all smashed up or or they're unresponsive but still have a pulse and are breathing, put a NPA in.

u/elemenofy · 4 pointsr/tea

Yes - according to at least my local health department, the guidelines to prevent contamination, etc are:

  • keep cold things under 40 degrees
  • keep hot things above 120

    If something has been heated and then cooled, it can't be between 40 and 120 degrees for more than 4 hours. If you are cooling something, then you should be using an ice bath. The fastest way to cool something is by immersing the container in ice+salt water. If you cool in the fridge, the contents will actually take longer than the safe time period to cool down.

    If you have mold growing in any open or closed containers in your fridge, take the opportunity to empty your fridge and give everything a deep clean. Otherwise, nasties like listeria can grow. It could even be a little dripping leak somewhere that's collecting in the back, encouraging mold growth.

    You can also pick up good sanitizers at your local home-brew store. Friends of mine use a product called Starsan for their home brewing to keep everything sterile. It's also EXCELLENT at getting rid of tea stains if you leave things to soak for an hour or so (depending on how stained they are).

u/PhDinBroScience · 4 pointsr/SleepApnea

I just soak everything in diluted Star San. It's flavorless, odorless, biodegradable, has a 30-second contact time to obliterate basically everything, and is safe for human consumption.

I homebrew beer and Star San is the cleaning agent I use to sanitize all of my brewing equipment. Sanitation in beer brewing is the absolute #1 most important factor when brewing beer, you want your equipment to basically be sterile. You can't achieve sterility unless you use an autoclave, but Star San will get you damned near to it. Any little contaminant, even microscopically, can infect and ruin beer. I've been brewing for 10+ years and have never had an infected batch that I didn't mean to infect (sour beers), and Star San is the reason for that. If it's good enough to sanitize brewing equipment, it's overkill for sanitizing CPAP equipment.

And the best part is it requires essentially no work from me whatsoever. I just throw everything in a bucket of Star San solution twice per week and let it sit for a couple minutes, then rinse. Done. Even that is overkill though, since it technically requires only 30 seconds. I usually just throw it in and then go make some coffee, then rinse after coffee is done.

You can mix up 5 gallons of Star San solution with distilled water and it will be good for years of repeated use if you cover it.

Buy some Star San, mix it in a bucket with distilled water to the ratio stated on the bottle, and you're set for literal years. It'll foam up when you agitate it. Don't fear the foam, the foam is good. You can also use it to clean basically everything else in your house, too.

This reads like an advertisement, but I love this shit. It cleans everything, is safe for humans, last for years, and requires basically no work from you aside from the initial dilution. Just buy it, it's great.

The secondary tissue damage around the burn site is the most painful part, usually second/first degree burns. So a thin layer of this stuff that goes on and around the burn will make it feel like it never happened for a couple hours. Loose, breathable bandage/gauze on top once it dries a bit.

And although there might be a generic, and it's the same stuff, I swear the brand name works better. Probably placebo effect.

Something else good as an overnight treatment for active acne is a hydrocolloid bandage. You may have to lance the spot with a sterile needle first, but put one on the cleaned area and leave it on at least 8 hours. The next day, it will be noticeably smaller/less painful. You can tell if it's worked because the dressing will have a bubble of lymph and gunk sucked up in it, and it's safe to use several days in a row.

Re: tent. Totally depends on the size of your dog and your sleeping arrangements. For car camping, I use a two person tent and my dog's bed (bringing her own bed definitely helps calm her down)

This is the one I bought, from Amazon (because I have Prime). It's not really a lotion -- more like a salve. Thick and a little gross feeling when you first apply it, but it absorbs fairly quickly and then just leaves my skin feeling soft.

I would post pictures of my lesions, but honestly there's not much to look at yet. My hands and feet feel softer, but still have the tell-tale red lesions. I'll do before and afters if I start to notice any difference.

u/alienman · 3 pointsr/toddlers

I'd try a hydrocolloid dressing that you can cut to the right size. It seals the wound in its own moisture and keeps out air. It's also waterproof and, if you get the right one, doesn't fall off for days. Get a very, very, thin one. Not a thick blister bandaid that you'll see in the store. The thin ones seem to stay on the face better for me and they are easier to cut into the right size and shape. The moisture sealed in prevents scabbing and will therefore not itch so much. And the wound will heal with minimal scarring. This stuff is a godsend.

u/takes22tango · 3 pointsr/diabetes

I'm afraid I'm not much help with the bleed problem. Have you tried wearing the sensor in an alternate site from the abdomen? There is a lot of movement in the torso area even with out a good jog. I like to wear mine in the back of my arm, I find that it sticks on longer and is more accurate there.

I like to use Skin Tac to get it to stick after the edges start rolling up. I know as far as tape goes there is a kind that's very popular around here, I can't recall the name but I'm sure someone will comment with it :)

Edit: The tape a lot of people seem to like is OpSite Flexifix. I've never tried it since I prefer as little space on my skin covered as possible, but different things work for different people!

u/BeepBleepBoop · 3 pointsr/diabetes

You absolutely want some medical tape to keep it on. I get about 12-14 days out of each sensor easily if I put Op-site flexifix found here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0015TI2ZA/ref=mp_s_a_1_2_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1493006572&sr=8-2&keywords=opsite+flexifix

To cut it I use the full width(20 squares) by 14 squares length. Then cut in the middle an 8x5 hole and then round the outer edges. Put it on over the white tape that comes on the sensor. This stuff works wonders and it lasts the full two weeks. I've also seen people putting it on first and the sensor afterwards through a little hole they cut in it but I haven't tried that yet since my way works fine for me.


Also, you don't want to calibrate too often. It'll throw it off if you do it more than 3 times a day, apparently. I'm not sure how true that is.

In the first 12-24 hours you'll have some funny looking trends. They're generally right but usually a bit more "skippy" or "jumpy" because it just takes some time to get it calibrated and going. It's still pretty accurate even at the beginning for me, though.

Finally, call customer support for any questions or problems. They are actually very helpful and will replace sensors if one goes bad or something.

Good luck with it! My dexcom got me down to the 6s for the first time in 9 years!

u/shrimpcot · 3 pointsr/diabetes

I always get at least 2 weeks out my sensors. The one I am wearing now is on day 28 and still accurate. The adhesive can be an issue so I cover the whole thing with this stuff: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0015TI2ZA/ref=oh_details_o08_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I cut a small piece of gauze to cover the actual sensor part so I dont get adhesive all over it. It works great.

Insertion is no big deal at all. If you can handle injections you can handle this.


UPDATE: OK, 28 days may be too long to wear one sensor. I just pulled it off and found a nasty infected friction sore type of thing underneath. The insertion point was still fine for what its worth.

> fully-equipped backpack ready for a survival experience ... in areas of woodland

I say your first step is to make a very specific goal. Like "Survive in the woods by myself for 3 days in the winter" or "Travel through the woods with another person for 7 days in the summer".

Then what's your budget? Target weight?

I like to use the survival rule of threes and start at the beginning

  • 3 minutes without air
  • 3 hours without shelter
  • 3 days without water
  • 3 weeks without food

    Then once you've bought your gear, test it. Maybe you have a broken item. Maybe it's hard to use without modification. Maybe you're just awful at starting fires.

    I'll give you one suggestion to start with: a compression bandage. Can't live that long without blood, can you?
u/OddTheViking · 3 pointsr/VEDC

Large gauze pads or bandages and cloth first aid tape. In my experience most injuries that are not a sprained or broken limb are going to be large scrapes or cuts.

If you are worried about more serous injury, some quick-clot and some larger bandages. I carry an "Israeli" bandage which is designed for gunshot wounds. Unlikely I will need it for that, but I am more likely to see an accident with a knife, axe, or saw.

As others have said, a couple Ace type bandages and a SAM splint.

For less serious stuff, some moleskin (for blisters), burn cream, cortizone cream, and some OTC meds:

  • Ibuprofen
  • Acetaminophen
  • Anti-diarrhea
  • Benadryl
  • Anti-gas
  • Phenylephrin (decongestant)

    On top of that I always have at least a couple days of prescription meds.
u/Maximum_Ordinate · 3 pointsr/Hunting

Buy yourself a decent bolt action .22 or a shotgun, a good 3-5" fixed blade knife, a blaze orange hat or vest, and a decent little first aid kit (don't forget a tourniquet).


Step 1: Take a hunters safety/education class.

Some states have classes exclusively for adults. This will give you some basic, but good info on gun/bow safety and state laws pertaining to hunting. In addition, they should have pamphlets that will outline the different hunting seasons, game animals, invasive species, and state/federal hunting areas.

These classes might also help you meet some more experienced folks who could bring you along or offer some valuable advice.


Step 2: Learn how to use your gear.

Your ability with your gear can mean the difference between success and failure on the hunt--and in some cases life and death (especially pertaining to your med kit).

Let's start with the rifle. I like bolt action .22's. You can get a very accurate gun and learn how to use it for very little money. Using a bolt action .22 with iron sights forces the shooter to learn the fundamentals of marksmanship, building a solid foundation for the future.

I like the Savage MkII and the Ruger American.

With either rifle I'd recommend adding a peep sight and a regular 2 point sling.
Both are accurate and inexpensive rifles that you can shoot day in and day out for years.

You should be able to find a range with at least 50 yards to sight in (aka zero) your rifle. If you need guidance here, there are plenty of online resources, however, you'd do better to ask an experienced shooter for a hand. Be sure to use the same ammo for zero and hunting.

For shotguns you can't beat the versatility of a Remington 870 or Mossberg 500. Get either gun in 12 or 20 gauge. The beauty of these two is that you are always a simple barrel change away from being able to shoot birdshot (birds small game) or slugs (everything else).

With a good .22 and a good shotgun, you should be able to hunt most wild game in North America. There are better calibers and rifles for specific hunting applications but those two will do it all.

What I don't recommend for hunting rifles/shotguns and why:

1 I don't like scopes (at first). Forcing yourself to learn on iron sights means you develop a firm foundation in the fundamentals. I remember wanting a scope for my .22 so bad, so my dad made me a deal. I had to kill 100 red squirrels or starlings and 10 groundhogs before he'd let me add a scope. It took me the better part of a summer to accomplish this but I walked away from that summer being able to put lead on just about anything within 150 yards of that little rifle.

2 I don't like autoloaders (at first). Simply because shooting a bolt gun means you have one, maybe two shots to get the job done. You learn to make ever shot count. Once you are proficient, go wild.

3 I don't like tactical/tacticool rifles for beginners or really hunting for that matter. They are usuallly auto loaders (see #2), heavier, and more expensive. You don't feel so bad taking your $230 Savage through brambles, tripping over roots and dropping it, or leaning it up against a rusty fence post. If you don't trust me, look at what the professional hunters use.

Extras: buy a quality, brass rod cleaning kit and some decent gun oil (or CLP) for deep cleans. Keep a [Bore Snake](.22 .223 .25 CAL Bore Snake Cleaner Kit Cord Rope Brass https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00JKSNVTK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_XRfGzbN7P8Z58) in an extra pocket for the times you get dirt or debris in the barrel.


Get yourself a good knife. I always have my pocket knife (a CRKT M21-02G) and a skinner when I'm hunting.

For a pocket knife use what suits you. For a skinner I really like knives like the Schrade Old Timer 158 for general skinning and this blade from Ontario Knife.

You also need a good way to keep your knives sharp. I've had a lot of luck with the. [Lansky System](Lansky Deluxe 5-Stone Sharpening System https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000B8IEA4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_85fGzbBRJDH6K).


Last, please get yourself a decent med kit. Too many people have died in the woods due to a knife accident or gun accident that could have been easily treated.

You can easily make yourself a basic kit or buy one like [this](Ever Ready First Aid Meditac Tactical Trauma IFAK Kit with Trauma Pack Quickclot and Israeli Bandage in Molle Pouch https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00GAAMS2M/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_iagGzb76NGQZJ) pre-made.

This kit has everything you need except for a tourniquet like [this](Tourniquet - (Black) Recon Medical Gen 3 Mil-Spec Kevlar Metal Windlass Aluminum Lightweight First Aid Tactical Swat Medic Pre-Hospital Life Saving Hemorrhage Control Registration Card (1 Pack) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01ETMVQOI/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_fcgGzbSAMKAWS) and an Israeli Bandage like [this](Ever Ready Bandage Battle Dressing First Aid Compression Bandage, 6 Inch https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003DPVERM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_1cgGzb9C9H5WP).

You can learn to use all this stuff over the course of an hour via YouTube. You would do better to find a nurse, paramedic, or Navy Corpsman to give you a crash course in the use of the contents of your IFAK. If you can find a Corpsman, they are probably the best for this kind of thing. Lots of good tips and tricks for field use...plus you can pay them in beer.

Don't forget to add extras like any medication you might need, chapstick, Bayer aspirin (good for headaches and heart attacks), a little tube of antibacterial ointment, and a couple fabric bandages.

If you won't carry this on your person, keep it in your vehicle.

For good practice I like squirrel and rabbit hunting. Makes you consider a lot about safety, a lot about taking only the good shots, plus they are easy to clean and good to eat.


Last learn how to use what you kill.

If you are hunting varmits, that is one thing. I shoot invasive species (when legal), and varmits that are causing a nuisance and that is reason enough for me.

If you are hunting anything else for exclusively for sport, please use it. You can use some of the books referenced earlier to learn about skinning and field dressing. I like to watch shows like Meat Eater, to learn better ways to use the meat I've harvested. Once you get into cooking game meat, you will wonder why you ever went to the store for meat.

Just don't forget that hunting is about stewardship and learning. It's a lifelong pursuit that is very rewarding.

Always be safe, always be ethical, always be responsible, always have fun.

Edit: If you ever find yourself in south central or southwest Michigan, I can help you with anything I've outlined above. I'm a lifelong hunter, a lifelong shooter, a small arms instructor in the military, a certified combat lifesaver, and a decent game cook.

For the nighttime eye guard make sure to get 3M tape. I had used some generic from the pharmacy and after tearing it off multiple weeks on end my skin started to get raw. This is what I used

If he already wears eye glasses get new ones ordered with one lens straight through. Also get good total block sunglasses.



Get baby shampoo or TheraTears lid scrub to help him clean his eyes. All those drops can build up a lot of goop. His eyes will be dry a lot so a lot of eyedrops (Thera tears is what I use) will help. Also for allergies in the eye to help with itching Zaditor was a life saver.

u/revtcblack · 3 pointsr/mead

Background

Based upon my initial question: Is it wine or meed?, I am working on my first Mead/Pyment. I've taken the original recipe I cobbled together from a variety of sources.

Is it mead? Well yes. According to the calculators in the sidebar concord juice is about 8.89% sugar. Honey is roughly 80%. I'm no math wiz, but I fussed with both Google and Wolframalpha and 8.89% of two gallons is roughly 45 Tablespoons or 0.23 pounds of sugars, 1 Gallon of Honey is roughly equivalent to 204 tablespoons of sugars or 7.9 pounds of sugars. yes I know Different types of sugars, etc. etc. But the mixture here is getting much more than 51% of the sugars from honey, so: 'tis a Wine -> Mead -> Melomel -> Pyment.


The following is an expansion of The GotMead format for recipes.

  1. Ingredients
    • Star-San - not technically an ingredient, but it's for sterilization. I think of it as an anti-ingredient keeping the bad bugs out. (Sprayer use= 1/4 tsp to 650ml water & 60 second exposure)
    • 1.5 Gallons of boiled tap water (more or less to make things work out.) NOTE: I have well water, not city water - so no chlorine & plenty of minerals.
    • ~2 Gallons of homemade concord grape juice. (SG 1.060)
      Last year I pressed about about six gallons of grape juice from concords of my own. I was going to make jelly in the winter and froze it in the deep freeze.
    • 10lbs (now 15lbs) of Pure N Simple Honey.
    • ~3 tsp Fermax from Amazon.
    • Red Star Premier Blanc [Amazon] (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00434CB74)

  2. Equipment
    • Large Stainless stock pot (for initial boil)
    • 5 Gallon food grade bucket & Lid sterilized.
    • 4 Gallon Sams club water bottle playing the role of carboy.
    • Hydrometer
    • Transfer hose
    • Water lock/ Bubbler

  3. Preparation
    • Thaw the grape juice overnight in the fridge in a large container in case of leakage.
    • Sterilization/pasteurization.
      Thinking through the volume of Honey (~1 gallon) and aiming for a 4 gallon carboy; bring 1.5 gallon of water to a boil. Turn off heat, add the grape juice in order to pasteurize the juice without setting the pectin, stir in about 10-12 pounds of honey. (remove any scum that forms)
    • Sanitize the bucket and lid, and stirring spoon.
    • Stir vigorously as you add the ingredients.
    • add to the bucket, check the temperature and the SG - calculate remaining honey or water and add as needed. Stir till mixed, or your arm falls off - whichever comes first.
    • Check the temperature until it is at least down to about 80 degrees then add the yeast we're off to primary fermentation.

  4. Primary fermentation.
    • 5 gallon sterilized bucket & lid with airlock.
    • Actual Original Specific Gravity (OG): 1.130 (I thought it was 1.122 but the must was still quite warm.)
    • I will plan on testing as fermentation tapers off and make a decision then on adding additional honey and warm water (carefully of course) in order to restart fermentation. (adjust to desired SG as needed).
    • Once fermentation has stopped transfer it to the secondary.

  5. Secondary.
    • 4 gallon sams club water jug (plastic) with airlock.
    • Saved my honey jugs just in case I had any left over that wouldn't fit in the carboy.
    • Time. Lots of time.

      Notes:

      9/13/16 Initial. Retested SG, it was at 1.130.

      9/15/16 Sterilized a large spoon and vigerously stirred to aerate. SG at 1.074, fermentation is fast and furious.

      9/16/16 Aerated/degassed. 3tsp fermax. SG 1.050

      9/16/16 Aerated/degassed. SG 1.026

      9/21/16 Racking Day. SG 0.998 (ABV 18%?). Upon racking there was not quite enough in the carboy. After staring at it for twenty minutes I decided to gamble and added one gallon of water, and 5LBS of honey to bring it up to just below the base of the neck. Retesting the SG was 1.030. It is currently sitting inside a 5 gallon bucket in my bathroom, I'll transfer it to the closet as soon as I'm reasonably certain it won't go Mt. St. Helens on my wardrobe.

Try going hairless and using Crystal Deodorant. It comes in several scents and is all natural so nothing in it will harm your vaginal balance. However, it is made of various salts so would probably taste horrible to anyone giving you oral. Musk is caused by a couple of things: the bacteria that lives at your hair roots and sweating. Fancy polyester briefs are not absorbent. You can't completely kill the bacteria on your vulva (and it isn't a great idea to even try), but you may be able to reduce it by scrubbing your hairless (or close trimmed) vulva with an antibacterial soap. Then pat dry and use the deodorant. Wear an absorbent panty, like one for exercising meant to wick moisture away. A couple of weeks of steady routine and you should see a difference.

It should be introduced throughout white belt level and tested at blue. Everyone should know how to swim, some sort of self-defense, and take a first aid/CPR course. Without those, you are a victim waiting for someone else to come solve whatever problem you've encountered.

​

You specify choking/unconscious, but there have been posts about heart attacks and other issues.

​

And as some have mentioned, there are untrained people doing what their untrained instructors have shown. Lots of people get worked up about fake BB and McDojo's, but tolerate the same level of BS in first aid.

I've used Orabase (apparently the oral version of New Skin) on aphthous ulcers and it works best if the area is blotted dry as possible right before application. A styptic pencil, which you can find in the shaving section of pharmacies, may also staunch the flow of blood. I also use those on aphthous ulcers.

Columnaris is going to infect open wounds so getting it covered will help. It can't grow in >1% salt. Aquarium salt is just sodium chloride without any other ingredients. It's said that kosher salt is likely to be pure NaCl.

I can totally relate because of two factors: hair and sweat.

Products like powders to keep me dry just don't work. Whenever I finish a run, especially in the summer, it looks like I just got out of the pool. I usually wring about 1/2 cup of water out of my tech shirts and 1/4 cup out of my climalite synthetic box briefs.

I use Bag Balm before and after. It lubes you up, stays put and doesn't go away, and has crazy good healing power in the mean time. A 10oz tub will last you forever, and is also great for cuts and scrapes, dry skin and chapped lips and nose in the winter time, and just about anything else.

The stuff is magic...I guarantee it.

u/tits_hemingway · 2 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

I'll keep an eye out!

One tip I can think of, though, is the miracle that is Bag Balm. My farmer grandfather used it for his cracked skin (especially lips) and sores when he was going through chemo and I'm using it now for my lips. It's kinda gross but it definitely keeps everything soft!

u/1qpalzm0 · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Nivea face cream or Pond's cold cream (my favorite!) are great affordable options.

Besides that,

  • Weleda skin food is incredibly hydrating, full of essential oils, and smells amazing. It's a cult favorite.

  • Neutrogena's gel cream is naturally formulated, has a great texture, and is great for being moisturizing without being oily.

  • Aveeno Active Naturals is great for balancing out combination skin- it's really light.

  • People might recommend Burt's Bees but I just want to add that personally, I didn't find the price worth it- it's good for keeping acne at bay, but it's not super moisturizing and doesn't help get rid of acne already present. Of course, it might work really well for you, especially if you've got sensitive skin!

  • Bag Balm was used for cow udders until people co-opted it for their dry skin. Fuckin' weird, but who cares as long as it works?

  • Aquaphor is a cult favorite here in the states.

  • Kiss My Face is a great option for moisturizing on the go (although idk how you feel about spray moisturizers- they scare me).

    A random super cheap trick is to cleanse with coconut oil. It can be a great, moisturizing cleanser, but it's not for everyone. Not a moisturizer, but if you're acne-prone these are amazing, especially right after the gym. Really helps to prevent dirt and sweat from building up. I don't know what the water is like in Denmark, but I've heard of French models using this instead of tap water.

    Sucks about the CeraVe- they don't tell you how frustrating and costly taking good care of your skin will be. As always, don't hesitate to go to a dermatologist (I don't know how insurance works in Denmark)- they are fantastic with recommendations (and sometimes will give you free samples!) since it's their job. Anyway, whew! Good luck & hope this helps!


u/Picklina · 2 pointsr/frogdogs

I've tried tons of butters and lotions, but so far, Bag Balm has been the best. It smells a little bit medicinal, but it keep the nose moist for days at a time (because I'm a terrible mother and forget to put it on most of the time).

A few days after you start using it, a gross layer of hard snout will slough off, but then you're left with a soft pink snoot.

u/KittyBombip · 2 pointsr/beyondthebump

We use something called bag balm and I swear by it. My daughter had diaper rash so bad that it blistered and bled (turns out she had a citrus allergy and her iron supplements were mixed with citrus.)

Now that she's older I keep it around for lip balm, the cracks on my heels and I've even used it to soften the leather on one of my purses. The best part is that it's a huge tin and costs less than $10. It lasted us for months when we used it everyday.

Holy shit those boots look crazy (and awesome!). I agree with your sentiments about waterproofness in the PNW. I would also go with a waterproof shoe if I lived in an area with a lot of precipitation like that.

I had problems with blisters on my heels too and started lacing my shoes differently and it seemed to help. Here's a video that demonstrates how to do the lacing on boots to hold the heel down a little bit better (it's a little bit different on trail runners/low cut hiking shoes, but pretty similar). Also make sure that your laces don't come undone or loosen throughout the day. You can do this by tying a different type of knot when you are done lacing your boot. I use this knot with all of my shoes and since I've started using it I've never had my shoe laces loosen or come undone throughout the day. It's kind of weird to do at first, but really easy once you get the hang of it.

The other thing that has really helped me is preemptively taping my foot in spots where I know I'm prone to get blisters. For this I use Leukotape which I've found is superior to duct tape as it's stickier and breathable so you can leave it on for a few days at a time (even if it gets wet). It's best to put the tape on the night before you start hiking (or if you're replacing it in the middle of the hike just do it before you go to bed) so that the adhesive adheres to the foot better which will just make it actually stick to your foot longer without having to replace it.

If I do end up getting a blister, I drain it (poke a hole in it with a needle or safety pin or even your knife as long as it's clean) and leave the skin intact and then put a hydrocolloid bandage over it to protect the area from infection and also provide some padding. Hydrocolloid bandages stick pretty well, but just to make sure it stays in place I put some leukotape over it. Both can be left in place for several days at a time. Hydrocolloid bandages are AWESOME and you can actually use them on regular wounds as well as long as they are not super oozing with blood or anything. I get pack of large pads from amazon which can be cut down to size. Here are some links: hydrocolloid bandages and leukotape.

Someone else mentioned Bodyglide and Hydropel. I've found these products to be useful, but only if you get blisters between the toes. If you get blisters on the heels or sides of your feet it doesn't seem to be as effective because it just soaks into the socks. One thing you could try instead that might help is a really thin sock liner made of coolmax fabric or something similar that will wick your foot sweat away from your foot. If your feet aren't sweaty then that's probably not an issue and I wouldn't recommend liner socks because they can make your feet hotter.

This post was way longer than I thought it would be. I had a lot of blisters the first few years I was backpacking, but now I'm (relatively) blister free. Like I said before this is what works for me but it's not for everybody! Good luck!

P.S. Your pictures were awesome and I am super jealous. I have been wanting to go to ONP for a while now. Thank you for sharing!

Most of the pimple patches are simply precut thin hydrocolloid bandages. You can save a lot of money making your own by buying large thin hydrocolloid dressings sold for wound care online and cutting them down to patch size.

No worries, I'm happy to answer any questions. The adhesive that the sensor comes with is ok, but it doesn't even last a full week for most people. I like to secure it with Opsite Flexifix. I'm still on the first roll I purchased back in 2015, make sure to get the one that is 4" across. I cut out a patch like this, except I use a tag punch to cut out the center hole (I got mine on ebay for $9). I also use [Patch Peelz] (https://pumppeelz.com/collections/patch-peelz) sometimes. Some people use GrifGrips or Rocktape. Lots of people swim and do all sorts of sports/ physical activity and the extra adhesive helps keep the Dexcom secure. I've heard of people who wear it on their arm using an additional arm band over the sensor/transmitter when playing contact sports to ensure it doesn't get knocked off.

u/aloneindankness · 2 pointsr/tattoo

Honestly? My advice is to get saniderm/tatuderm/tegaderm. It's a transparent waterproof dressing. You just slap it on and let it heal. It heals much better, and you don't have to wash and goop it all the time. You can buy it for yourself. My last artist didn't use it, so I just got some myself and applied it when I got home.

Here is the one I got off amazon, but they all have it in Walgreens. It is used for non-tattoo wounds/scrapes.

If you are gonna do it though, make sure you watch some application instructions.

If you don't want to do this, instructions are:

  1. Wash with gentle soap 2-3 times a day. Dr. Bronner's is great.

  2. Let air dry. DO NOT DRY WITH A TOWEL. The fibers can be irritating and carry bacteria.

  3. When it is COMPLETELY dry, apply a thin layer of Aquaphor. Do NOT use neosporin.

  4. Do this in the morning, when you get home from school/work, and before you go to bed. Try not to rub your tattoo on anything, and let it breathe.

    Talk to your artist too.
u/NotSoMeanJo · 2 pointsr/MtF

This is the tape that I use which is great, comfortable, and lasts all day. I've also had some success with swimming as well.

u/InsaneAmountOfSanity · 2 pointsr/diabetes

I go 2 weeks with each one. Sure they say only go a week but they seem to work for 2 weeks pretty well. I know some people in this sub go quite a bit longer than that. After about 7-8 days the adhesive starts to come up a little bit. I cut a piece of this with a hole in the middle for the transmitter to fit through and stick it right over the current adhesive. Works like a charm!

"Liquid Bandage / New-Skin" is quite common in the restaurant industry, especially in the kitchen.

u/SoylentBrew · 2 pointsr/RunPDX
u/SirMontego · 2 pointsr/LifeProTips

There's a product called Liquid Bandage. It is basically medical super glue that seals small wounds. The biggest difference between Liquid Bandage and super glue, that I've noticed, is that Liquid Bandage takes a few minutes to dry. And you paint it on, so it might be easier to apply than super glue.

Whoa, glad you are doing better. Those are no joke.

Removal... I don't know, they're fairly large and involved. Since they're newish, you could try keeping everything heavily moisturized with some quality cocoa butter, or try silicon sheeting. There's been some studies pointing to scar improvement with silicon, but I have no personal experience with them.

In time, the deep purple will fade, and they will become less noticeable.

A tattoo might help, but I would splurge on a good artist. I don't think scar tissue holds ink as well as normal skin.

Dating? They wouldn't bother me.

u/CrumbzID · 2 pointsr/foreskin_restoration

Is that due to the lack of the frenulum? I assumed if the skin gets loose enough, if pushed over the front of the head it would just stay as it were, at least when flaccid. Either way, this seems to have nothing but positive benefits. I'm going to go for around an hour of manual tugging per day, coupled with low-intensity tape holding the foreskin just over the glans for as long as I can each day, along with a manhood, until I can keep it covered on its own (I heard it helps with keeping the tape in place anyways.

Someone on a youtube thread recommended me this tape. Would this be a good choice?

It looks kind of wide, but maybe that's a good thing. I could always cut it if I had to. Maybe it would help with glans scarring too, since it is scar reduction tape.

u/Snickerdoodleydoo · 2 pointsr/offmychest

I have scars from deep cuts I did when I was younger. They are one of my biggest regrets. While they are still healing clean with a gentle soap and water and use butterfly bandages to close the gaps. After they’re healed and don’t have scabs anymore use these. This will help prevent them from scarring like this. (don’t click if you don’t want to see scars.)

u/APestilentFuture · 2 pointsr/ftm

Consult with your doctor first, but i would focus more on caring for your scars for the long term than hiding them in the short term. Take care of the scars so they heal more thoroughly. Things like scar away work pretty dang well (but are expensive because of the size of top surgery scars.

Scar Away on Amazon

u/hcholt · 2 pointsr/AsianBeauty

So this is a link to some on Amazon. I found some generic ones at the drugstore in the wound care isle for much cheaper. I don't remember the exact price but I can't imagine I would have paid more than $10. The box I have says they are washable and reusable for up to 7 straight days. Says it also works on acne scars, stretch marks and burns. I'm not sure about all that but it looks like it will at least keep that skin from folding over if you're worried about lines.

A picture could be helpful, but does it look like post inflammatory erethmya to you? When you apply pressure to the area does the redness temporarily dissapear?

First daily sunscreen can prevent any more damage to the area while you try to treat it. PIE occurs when damage is done to the capillaries. Youtube Video by a dermatologist who works hands on to cure his patients redness If you don’t want to do anything that major the acne.org website has a really nice page talking about what at home treatment options tend to help their members. One of the treatments mentioned on the page are silicone sheets and I must say they seem like a popular choice I have seen quite a bit of anecdotal evidece else where online that these are very helpful. Example

u/Brockdog · 2 pointsr/acne

Your skincare routine looks pretty good. Looking at your pictures, it does appear that your acne had cleared up for the most part. I'd really advise against using accutane as it won't help your condition. The inflammation on your skin appear to be PIE, not PIH, so chemical exfoliants like BHA and AHAs will have limited effect. At this point in time, there are only two viable methods of treating PIE: vascular lasers (e.g. v-beam, pulse dyed lasers) and perhaps silicone sheets. According to anecdotal accounts, keeping your skin hydrated also seem to helped PIE fade faster. Outside of that, the only thing you can do is have patience and time.

u/HoldenB97 · 2 pointsr/morbidquestions

I used these on some scars on my neck and they worked pretty well. You basically put them over your scars like band-aids and the silicone on them fades and heals them. I only wore them for about a month, twelve hours a day and skipping some, but they made a pretty good difference on my scars.

You have 'hooks and fishing line' in food then 'needle and thread' in medical. Couldn't 'hook and line' do the same thing here? (It's a non-issue for me because I'd pass out if I tried to give myself stitches) So the one addition that I've added to every pack I have, the BoB, the car, the truck, hunting packs, etc. is Quickclot. That and duct tape will have to suffice for me in place of stitches.

Bleeding out is a leading cause of death during severe trauma, yet it is one that can be mitigated to a great extent with some simple first aid gear and training. Having a First Aid Kit in your car is a great idea. Many things that the military uses in their Individual First Aid Kits (IFAK) can be purchased online. Amazon has CATs, Israeli Bandages, Quikclot, SAM Splints, Combat Lifesaver Guides (useful for situations where medical assistance might be delayed, like wilderness situations), and much much more.

u/Jackson3125 · 2 pointsr/Survival

You need to definitely put some thought into what you would need medically in a survival situation where you can't get to a hospital fast.

For example:

Quikclot to stop excessive bleeding until you can get medical help.

Sam Splint in case of a broken arm or leg.

If you break your arm or get a wound deep enough to where your wound won't stop bleeding, it doesn't matter how good you are at casting a net or purifying water.

You probably won't find much stuff that serious from US residents. To even imply directions or attempt to treat someone in the US puts you a legal liability risk in the event some shit happens. If it's anything that they can't treat themselves, it's a job for professional EMTs.

I carry a generic first aid kit in my Jeep for roadside, camping/hiking stuff, focused on more realistic encounters. I don't carry FA while playing airsoft but the kit is in the Jeep if I or someone needs it.

It's all basic stuff that requires little to no training to use..I'll try to list some out from memory. Remember, it's mostly focused for hiking/camping in southeast USA.

  • 1 25G Quick Clot impregnated bandage with application kit (single use).

  • Several yards of bandage wrap, 2 sizes on rolls
  • Trauma shears
  • Nitrile gloves
  • A few plastic tweezers
  • Bag of assorted Band Aids
  • Mole skin
  • Single use hydrocortisone packets
  • Single use bee/wasp sting swabs

  • Imodium pills
  • Antihistamine pills
  • Watergel single use burn gel packs
  • Ivy-X Poison Ivy/Poison Oak wipes
  • A few 4x6" ziplock bags for disposal
  • Sharpie


    There might be a few more things, it all fits within one of those EMT MOLLE pouches. No tourniquet or surgical kit. That stuff is a liability nightmare and likely to do more harm than good.

u/_marco_polo_ · 2 pointsr/Hunting

I use a 30L Marmot, an 85L Osprey, or a regular school backpack sized Northface, and absolutely love them. It really depends on personal preference and what kind of hunt you are going on. If you do buy an internal frame pack, be sure to go to a store and try it on with some stuff in it. If you go to a major hunting/camping place, they will have staff to fit it for you. Do that and then buy online to save money.

I've used cheap walmart base layers for years until this year. Got an amazing set from a Cabela's bargain cave and decided that from now on I am going to get the expensive ones(unless I find another sale). The cheap ones will do it, but aren't nearly as comfortable or warm so I had to wear more layers. My fiancee swears up and down that her under armor set is better than the same set I bought from cabelas(she has both).

For a jacket(and maybe pack) do you need it to be camo? If no, for a jacket I suggest a Carhartt. If yes on camo, I love my Drake but it was super expensive. Maybe check out Macks Prairie Wings site?

As for anything else to make your hunt more fun, if you are done growing, I suggest splurging on a great pair of boots. Warm, dry, and comfy feet make me really happy. I also sometimes bring a little pocket rocket or a jetboil for warm food or drink but that really depends on the type of hunt. Stanley makes a great thermos for warm liquid up to 10-12 hours.

Also maybe think about a compact trauma kit. Accidents happen. I've got an Israeli bandage (get a bigger one that I linked. 6in isn't enough) coupled with a put together trauma kit. Blood clot packs, gauze, alcohol, thermo blanket, etc.

Hope reading this wall of text helped.

u/17496634303659 · 2 pointsr/tacticalgear

Ok so first off, never ever use combat gauze or quick clotting sponges / powders in any situation unless the bleeding absolutely can't be controlled by a tourniquet. So, there are powdered quick clot applications, and the one that comes in a gauze form. The powdered version is extremely old, and was phased out of the military years ago. When it gets in contact with blood, it becomes excruciatingly hot and can actually burn you. Soldiers found that when downrange, if there are a decent breeze and they were trying to pour the powder in a wound, some would fly into their eyes or onto their sweat skin and start burning. Also, unlike the gauze, there is no way to force it into the wound and apply pressure onto the bleeding artery. The gauze form has a blue line down the center that actually shows up on x rays so doctors can remove all of the gauze. The chemical found in the powder has been put into the gauze.

That is what I assume you are speaking of when you say granuals. So with the gauze, you dont just take it out of the package and smack it on the wound. Let me find a video real quick on how to properly apply it.

Video on combat gauze!

Video shown to us medics when we first joined for training!

Hope that gives you a better idea.

If you were in a bad mountain bike crash and it left a big gash on your leg, I would use an ETB (Israeli Bandage) if it wasn't arterial bleeding (you look down at your leg and bright red blood is literally SQUIRTING out = arterial). You are just trying to keep the skin closed, apply pressure, and gtfo.

ETB on Amazon!

That is what we use in the military.

Any more questions feel free to ask.

Some supplies I often recommend:




  • Norton 4K/8K
    For general honing, and a laborious restoration/bevel set (if you do more than a few razors, get the 1k below to set a bevel).

  • A jewelers loop to see what happens to the blade as you hone, polish, stop and shave. I feel watching the sharpness of a straight razor bevel develop and degrade is a critical education step in straight razor bevel maintenance.




  • Chromium Oxide on a strop for final polish, or a diamond pasted strop.


  • King 1000 K For bevel setting.




  • DMT flattening stone your hones don't ship flat, and must even them out - use sandpaper till you get this.


  • Niawa 12K
    For polishing your razor with a stone (some prefer this method).

  • Mineral oil to prevent rust (local pharm)

I used hand sanitizer then examined the merchandise. It wasn't what I was looking for so I gave it back. I then went back to browsing. Finally I picked something out and came back to the cashier to check out.

I asked, "Do you have the hand sanitizer Maybe You Touched Your Genitals ?

I see some other ladies mentioning tape, and having tried basically all methods and types of tape, I think medical/surgical tape is my favourite. It’s quite clear, which is a bonus, plus it’s meant to maintain its hold to keep iv’sand tubes in place no matter how much the skin sweats etc so I find it holds all day no problem!

I rip a bunch of pieces before starting and continue to lay them until I have good support and shape

They were never a problem for me until I ran my first half. The shower after was extremely painful! Now I just throw on some of this transpore tape for anything that might go over 10. You can get it at any drug store for a few bucks and at an inch or two per nipple it lasts forever. As long as I remember to throw on the tape I have no issues whatsoever.

u/MechanicalTim · 2 pointsr/running

Yes, it helps, but I would not rely on it for a marathon in the rain. The most common solutions I've seen recommended here, that I have also tried myself, are NipEaze and Transpore tape. Squirrel's Nut Butter also gets a lot of recommendations.

This is what I use. I also tried durapore tape but it barely sticks. Transpore tape feels like it could rip a limb off if needed in comparison.

u/KingSchwingg · 2 pointsr/Kombucha

I use Star San. It's a very popular option for sanitation.
Clean container and remove any debris, rinse with water thoroughly, spray on Star San/water mixture and let it dry.

Buy an airlock and stopper that’ll fit whatever you’re fermenting in.

Use Starsan to sanitize.

IDK where you can get yeast but maybe an online home brew store will ship you some dry yeast.


You also will probably want to do a staggered nutrient addition or you could add raisins.

Most people start with a gear-kit similar to this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0179ZH89Y?keywords=northern%20brewer&qid=1449409004&ref_=sr_1_1&sr=8-1

Other thing you need is Starsan, it's a no-rinse sanitizer, you COULD use bleach, but you need at least 5 minutes contact time with bleach, and then you have to rinse the equipment which could introduce new bacteria. (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0064O7YFA?keywords=star%20san&qid=1449409431&ref_=sr_1_1&sr=8-1)

Then you need to check out your LBHS for ingredient kits/ recipes.

I see several chlorhexidine washes on Amazon that are definitely for human use, including Hibiclens and Dyna-Hex. I don't know know if there would be any effect a tattoo (past the healing stage, anyway) but I can't think of any reason for it to affect a tattoo any more than another antibacterial soap would.

I got mine through Amazon (currently $256 US).

There are some additional costs to be aware of though.

  1. Resin (~$40): I'm using Elegoo Grey
  2. 99% IPA (~$3) For cleaning prints
  3. UV Light (~$30) for curing
  4. Gloves (~$10) It comes with some, but you'll be replacing those quickly
  5. Ventilation (~$100) depending on where you're printing.

    It can add up if you're not careful. So plan for an additional $200.

These are so much fun.

  1. Something that makes you sweaty.
  2. Something that helps you cool down.
  3. No picnic would be complete without these sunglasses to keep the sun out of your eyes and keep you looking awesome.
  4. If you could vacation anywhere in the world... Disneyland!! This isn't technically a souvenir since they sell method soap everywhere, but it's still Minnie ears. :)
  5. Something that makes you nostalgic.
  6. Something that would make camping better. The one and only time I went camping, I saw a bear, a frog stalked me, and I tripped and cut my arm and we didn't have any band aids. So these would make it better because I'm clumsy and would probably trip again and these are so much cooler than plain band aids.

  7. Something bear related. because sasquatch kind of looks like a bear.

  8. Road trip song! I love listening to pretty much any song by them and singing obnoxiously when I'm driving, but this one is my favorite at the moment. *not on my WL

You can also get something similar from cvs etc called like [healing bandaids](Band-Aid Brand Adhesive Bandages, Advanced Healing Blister Cushions, 6 Count https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000Y8W50G/ref=cm_sw_r_other_awd_-6SPwbYQNM4MV) but they are a bit thicker.

u/CJOttawa · 1 pointr/EDC

It'll be a while before I can put together a comprehensive post but think of the basics as items that would get you to the nearest ambulance.

OK, this became a comprehensive post. :P

Here are pics of the stocked kit. (a few items OTC meds are missing and need to be restocked)

https://imgur.com/a/fCVcp

Disclosure: I have enough basic first-aid training to know my limitations; an RN friend of mine helped me build this kit.

Meds


  • Benadryl and an epipen(you'll need an Rx for this) for allergic reactions

  • OTC Imodium/Pepto pills (since dehydration from vomiting or diarrhea will kill you)

  • OTC Advil, Tylenol, Naproxen (not absolutely necessary but the first two can help bring a fever down and Naproxen can bring inflammation down...more comfort items, they don't take up a lot of space)
  • triple antibiotic ointment in single use disposable packs (it's basically Polysporin but you avoid contaminating a whole tube by using individual packs; I try to find similar packaging with other stuff)

  • BZK wipes (for disinfecting scrapes and such)

  • sterile saline (small bottle or disposable sterile bullets for flushing out wounds or as an eye wash)

  • non-enteric, standard 325mg Aspirin in individual foil packs (I've read that chewing these at the time of a heart attack and in the month after will improve survivability by as much as 23%)

  • if hypoglycemia or diabetes are factors, pack plenty of Dex4 sugar tablets and whatever other supplies you might need

    Misc.


  • 3M Steri-Strip closures to keep a deep cut from opening up further (forget surgical glue or stitches; you'll only seal dirt and bacteria into a wound)

  • couple of Tegaderm films would be good to cover wounds.

  • stretch gauze

  • sterile gauze

  • med tape

  • Advanced, flexible bandaids, large (forget fabric or regular crappy bandages; if you carry any at all, get these)

  • Advanced blister bandaids (similar to above material but different form-factor)

  • QuikClot sponge

  • triangle bandage with safety pins

  • pair of EMT shears (don't use a knife as you risk injury while cutting clothes or bandages)

  • Sliver Gripper tweezer with clip

  • pair of disposable nitrile gloves in a small sealed bag

  • water purification tabs (safe drinking water is critical; better this than having to use the Imodium!)

  • emergency blanket (statistics are dramatic on reduced survivability with even the slightest hypothermia)

    The point of this kit is to get someone to the nearest medical help. You can get a replacement pair of nitrile gloves, more gauze or whatever when you get to the ambulance or hospital. Some of the stuff is for keeping conditions from getting worse (sliver removal, band-aids, blister cushions, ointment) which might be viewed as "comfort" items not "first aid" but in more rough environments, an infected cut could kill you so I put it in.
u/followthefeather · 1 pointr/RandomActsofMakeup

This is a really cool contest! Thanks for hosting. My confused epidermis would like to be able to say bye zits.

My most recently discovered game changer is Bag Balm. I wrote a rave over in /r/SkincareAddiction about how wonderful this stuff is for dry lips, but I've since found a bunch of other uses for it.

It helps heal cuts and popped zits and made my lips go from cracked and bleeding to soft and smooth in a few days. When my skin is really dry I slather it on top of my moisturizer at night for an extra kick. This week I have a terrible cold and my nose is chapped and dry and gross from over-blowing, and this stuff keeps it from hurting. It also softens elbows and feet. It's a miracle in a tin, seriously. I bet almost everyone could find at least one use for it.

I know I'm late to the party, but anyway... I always recommend Bag-Balm. I used to work at a rescue shelter, and we used this [to great effect] on dry/cracked/scarred noses and paw pads. It works well on collar sores and light scrapes, too.

Hi, I'm Kat! I really enjoy gardening and dark humor and cartoons. Once I won a writing contest in elementary school that they turned in to a play!

I would really like to try this balm. I have extremely sensitive hands that like to turn red and crack and peel all of the time. It's like rosacea, but only on my hands. Sometimes they get so bad it makes them achey just when I wash them. I have heard this balm works wonders and lasts quite a while. Happy hands would make me very happy!

Ever heard of bag balm? It was created to keep cow udders soft. Works wonders on humans, too :) I put this on at night in the winter. You can try during the day but it is goopy and comes off easily.

I used monkey hands for a while and loved it, but it is pricey
(about $20 for 2 oz.).

I started making my own stuff with lanolin, but bag balm is essentially lanolin with some antiseptics in it, and it is SUPER cheap ($12 for 10 oz.).

Lanolin works great for repairing and healing cracked and dry skin, and it softens the calluses without making them disappear, so the calluses still protect your hands, they just don't tend to rip off.

Bag Balm is good for cracked skin.

Bag Balm

Less is more, and it's really greasy - think Vaseline. I'd recommend applying a touch to your cheeks (and any crows feet, because why not?) every evening before bed. Let it soak in and do it's magic over night. It plumps out little lines and wrinkles so I'm thinking that it'll help your ventilator marks dissipate more quickly. It also helps heal dry cracked skin.

Sure thing:

Tegaderm roll

I think the tegaderm comes in narrower rolls that might be more appropriate for hands/fingers; I do a fair amount of yard work / gardening that results in lots of scratches on my arms/legs so I find it useful to buy the wider rolls to cover that kind of stuff as well.

Thanks for the suggestions :) I'll drop by a few of the stores around me that carry Asian skincare items because I know I've seen that Softymo one around. I wear a good amount of makeup every day.

I have used the Nexcare bandages before and they worked amazingly! It was so expensive for just a few bandages though, so I decided to try this brand of hydrocolloid bandages from Amazon. Hopefully they work just as well, because with the amount of acne I have it's not affordable for me to use the Nexcare brand ones! I'm so terrible about picking; everyone in my family are pickers, actually! My aunt even asks to pop my pimples and squeeze my sebaceous filaments whenever she notices them :( She refuses to listen to any skincare advice not off Pinterest though, ugh.

I put on the sides of my stomach (think love handle area) and put Mastisol (like SkinTac) on first, then the sensor and then layer over it with Tegaderm (I bought a roll of 11 yards) it keeps it secure for two weeks and I work out and sweat every day

Skin Tac: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001LZUWP6/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Edit: I bought both when I went on the Ominpod and Dexcom but have yet to need each so I can't vouch for their effectiveness personally.

u/workaway24 · 1 pointr/diabetes

>Is it difficult to insert at first?

Depends on where you insert it, but no. I have found that if you go slow it hurts. Get the adhesive in the right place, pinch some skin around it AND GO! Dont be apprehensive.

>How long do you keep a sensor on?

I go 2 weeks per sensor without any difficulties. Could probably go a few more days. Buy yourself some adhesive and use it about a week into a sensor.

>How long does the transmitter last?

The battery will die right around 3 months.

>Any complaints with using the G5 + iPhone app?

I exclusively use the iPhone app and love it. My actual dexcom receiver is plugged in on my night stand as a backup alarm in case I go low while sleeping.

>I'm very lean, will inserting the sensor be especially difficult because of this?

I insert my sensor in the back of my arm all the time. It may be tender/sore for a day or so but that eventually goes away and all is well.

>In general, how accurate can I expect the CGM to be?

Close enough! You will almost NEVER see it right on. Mine is off anywhere from 5-30 points at any given time but thats okay.

Other than insulin (duh) the Dexcom has been the best thing thats happened for my diabetes care. If you use it correctly it will change your control and you will see better A1C results. Use it for trends. Has your glucose been going up for the last 2 hours? Test and bolus. Has it been going down for the last 2 hours? Test and eat. Its not meant to replace finger pricking, just to help you monitor trends and correct based off of that info. I've talked to people who think the point of one is so they dont have to manually test themselves anymore. If you go into it thinking that, you are going to use it correctly. Use it to monitor yourself and supplement for manual testing. Im 34 and use the Dexcom Share app as well. I think its mainly used for parents that have a child who is diabetic. I gave my wife access to my readings. She installed the app on her phone and can check it just like I can. I also set her phone up with a low alert so if I go below 50 mg/dl she gets an alert. That way if we arent together she can call to make sure Im okay or alert someone who is near me that I might be in trouble.

u/gamebofh · 1 pointr/trailrunning

Go get an occlusive dressing and put it on. First, it promotes healing, second it makes it so it doesn't harden up and hurt when you sleep and when it bends. If you go to your local pharmacy, they'll have Tegaderm , that can be a bit pricey but worth it for the lack of pain.

I bought Flexifix from Amazon, and it's amazing. Inexpensive and gets used for a lot of cuts/abrasions around the house.

General advice for these:

  • Yes, they are way different than what you're used to, that's ok.
  • No, your wounds don't "need air" to heal.
  • For large ones (like those) having a pad inside (you can make your own by putting gauze in there or just buy the Tegaderm with them) it will help to absorb the fluid
  • You only need to change them when the start to fall off
  • Use it for one more time than you think you need to. I always think it's fully healed a few days before it is.

    Good luck.

Humble white belt here, going more by recommendations I've heard/read than by personal experience.

> what exercises would you recommend people to do to make bjj training more accessible on a physical level?

The general consensus seems to be that the best preparation for BJJ is BJJ, if that makes sense.

So, ideally, you'd start attending BJJ as soon as possible - maybe there's a class today? tomorrow? this weekend? - and everything will flow from there if you keep showing up (and if you don't, it won't).

Come as you are, warts and all.

If you're uncomfortable with that, and absolutely insist on preparing in solitude beforehand, it seems the general consensus seems to be that your basic BJJ solo drills - bridging, shrimping, etc. - would help far more than any type of weightlifting exercise.

So far I'm trying to just tough it out! My hope is that I'll develop callouses / welts / whatever-that-stuff-is-called-in-English sometime before the constant mat burn pain fucks up my sleeping patterns completely.

But hey, I also hear good things about New-Skin Liquid Bandage - you might wanna check into that.

> am I right in feeling that with adequate training previous to starting bjj my chances of sticking to it are better? I just feel like I was a drag to roll with because I lost breath so easily and felt guilty about it...

I honestly don't think so.

I think - and I apologise in advance if I'm being too forward or too presumptuous - this is a primarily a mental issue on your part.

Your pride is getting in the way of your development.

The feeling of embarrassing oneself, of making a fool of oneself, of having one's shortcomings stripped naked and revealed - all of this is extremely hurtful to one's pride.

If I had to guess, this, more than anything else, is what's currently holding you back.

I'd suggest trying to laugh about it. Laugh at your own incompetence, laugh at your own pride making a big deal out of this, laugh at the weirdness and utter silliness of this sport of ours.

I did so just the other day, when a pimple-faced little teenage lad tapped me out a dozen or so times in a row, all while looking positively distracted - I mean, he literally kept looking around the room, studying the other rolls while calmly tying me up like a pretzel, again and again and again. Others might have found this embarrassing - I found it both hilarious and highly informative.

Getting long-winded here, but finally, about the overweight thing: We have an overweight guy in our beginner's group - after warm-ups, you'll find him lying in a pool of sweat panting like he's having a heart attack. No one thinks any less of him for that - quite the opposite. Nothing but admiration to any and all who strive towards improvement.

TL;DR - If you want to do BJJ, do BJJ.

There are really effective things you can purchase at any Walmart or major pharmacy like Walgreens. There is a product called "scar away". Its basically like a reusable bandaid. The adhesive is gentle on your skin. Basically you place the middle of the tap over the opening tip of your foreskin with the two halves of the tape adhering to your skin. This will keep the skin from rolling back behind your glans, potentially even during an erection. Its usually around 15$ for a box of like 20 strips, but they are re useable if you wash them in warm water so that's enough for over a year. Here is what the box looks like on amazon, but you can buy it at any Walmart. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001AJ4L1E?aaxitk=l7eRQzCWBi4tY285cEYgEQ&pd_rd_i=B001AJ4L1E&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_p=3507616222&pd_rd_wg=9N2dj&pf_rd_r=RFP8GRPH3AFQ3NVWPQ0J&pf_rd_s=desktop-sx-top-slot&pf_rd_t=301&pd_rd_w=pkzWJ&pf_rd_i=scar%2Baway&pd_rd_r=b1216953-4e3f-4684-a761-211ce56e9618&hsa_cr_id=3435781320701&th=1

u/duck_sized_horses · 1 pointr/Advice

I think it's very brave of you for wanting to address this.

I don't have any advice that hasn't already been given, but there are products that can help fade your scars. There is also laser therapy if you have a greater budget.

Definitely look into the tattoo policy at your workplace and see if it would be allowed. If you're comfortable covering the tattoo, and it means so much to you, I don't see any reason not to get it. Just remember to see a tattooist who has worked around scar tissue before.

Apparently the gels and creams do not work any better than petroleum jelly in clinical trials. The silicone sheets do work, though, but they're kind of a pain to use. There is a generic name for this type of scar covering, but I do not remember what it is.

You can't get 100% because distilling ethanol and water can't get below 99%. You need to add benzene and once distilled it needs to be kept in an air free container or stored below -20C. Manufacturers won't go through that effort outside of a specific demand.

It's definitely not ideal. It might work in a pinch, but depending on what it's made of, and the additives, it may do more harm than good. That said, I've cleaned contacts with vodka before, so you never really know.

What you really want is this. It's $6.50 with prime shipping included, and the exact right product.

Here's some 99% for your side of the Atlantic.

u/sylas_zanj · 1 pointr/saplings

u/gingerking87 · 1 pointr/trees

That's not even a good deal, or am I missing something? If you are using it to clean pipes or make hash 99% is so much better. Only like $6.50 on amazon.

Isopropyl Alcohol, its pure alchol with a bitterant to make it taste even worse just in case its swallowed.

Used for sterilizing wounds and in our case, cleaning electronics as its a very poor conductor of electricity and evaporates entirely. leaving no residue behind.

You can find it at almost every drug store, grocery store, or major retailer.

The use of hemostatic dressings does not require "extensive" training or a deep understanding of medicine.

> You rarely see them outside of the military for a reason.

Not even close to true. Many basic trauma first aid kits for hiking/sport in the wilderness include hemostatic dressing.

This one is pricey, but small. About the size of two credit cards next to each other.

This one is cheaper, but bigger. It'll only fit in a cargo pocket. I bought two of these from Academy yesterday, along with some extra QuikClot gauze and two SOF-T tourniquets. I've got one set in the toolbox of my truck, and one in my backpack.

It’s pretty sweet! Obviously I’m playing airsoft, so it’ll likely never get used but who knows.

I opted to buy the empty kit and fill it myself. I read that this can be a bad idea because they really shove shit in there right with their kits. But it worked out. I ended up getting this trauma kit on Amazon and it fits perfect in there. You just have to really shove everything in there and pack it full for it to stay put on your belt.

u/LeYang · 1 pointr/WTF

Just saying, to properly apply a tourniquet, you want to at least be ~two inches above the wound, which is hard if it's higher up since there'll be no room to apply a proper tourniquet.

Plus you want a wide tourniquet if possible, so he doesn't lose his legs.

Or you could have used QuikClot.

u/xVigilantAtWar · 1 pointr/bugout

For your medical kit, let me suggest a two parter -Trauma and Mama.

If you're going to need to make your way somewhere during a disaster event (natural, terrorist attack, civil unrest, etc.) you might find yourself or a loved one fall victim to a serious trauma injury. This could be anything from a bullet wound to falling and slicing your leg on rubble. A good small trauma kit could be the difference between life and death (assuming that your final destination has healthcare services). Here is a good light weight kit. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B003BS2PW4/ref=pd_aw_sbs_1?pi=SY115

But hey, you might get lucky and that doosey of a fall you took left you with minor cuts. This is where you needed a Mama. This kit should have some antibiotic ointment and small wound cleaning supplies. You will want a few band aids of varying size and types. You will also want a few 4"x4" gauze pads and tape to get the bigger bobos. You want a few NSAIDs in there. Ibuprofen works the best for swelling, Tylenol works best for fever. Along with this you want to have an ace wrap, because a sprained ankle could add a lot of time to your 72 hour trip.

I hope this is bit informative when you go out looking for an aid kit. Remember, think about where you are going, how far it is, and what are some shity things that could likely happen. I know it's only a 72 hour bag, but make sure you can reasonably cover your bases.

u/1fox2go · 1 pointr/EDC

u/Jesus-face · 1 pointr/CampingGear

They're almost never recommended anymore. AFAIK the only time they have a use is if the limb is destroyed already, like stepped on a land mine or amputated by heavy machinery. Any kind of puncture or slice type thing you're likely to get outside short of being significantly eaten by a bear or shark is probably treatable with something else.

I have a few IBDs in my car stuff, but they're too bulky for backpacking. A clotting agent like this is pretty light weight, and they work amazingly well.

I carry a battle dressing in my back pack ever since I was bit by a dog. I got bit in the middle of nowhere and had to ride 10 miles to get back to my truck. Luckily I had some TP and a spare tube to cut the bleeding and keep it somewhat clean, but having this dressing would have helped a lot.

stock up HEAVILY on cotton gauze, paper tape, aquaphor, and steri strips. steri strips are amazing. my surgeon placed inch long pieces all along my incisions, and told me to keep them on until they fell off. as they fell off i replaced them with longer pieces because the swelling made me feel like i was going to pop open. i pulled them off in the shower every few days to replace with clean pieces and i wore them for a few weeks after i had my stitches taken out, really until i felt like my skin had come back together. i liked to put bandaid brand gauze pads over my regular thin gauze for cushioning under clothing and to keep aquaphor on the skin. aquaphor will be really helpful in keeping incisions moist so they don't scab but also will help the gauze not stick to any pus or blood within the incisions.
also a nice fan will help keep you comfy and is great for air drying your skin after showers before reapplying tape and gauze (:

u/DianeMadeMe · 1 pointr/running

I've seen a couple of suggestions for duct tape which is effective but a little harsh. You got the blister because of the friction between your sock and your foot. You have to eliminate the friction so the sock rubs something other than your toe.

Right now I'd recommend silk medical tape. It is very sticky, holds its adhesion well, and won't rip the hell out of the edges of your blister when you take it off like duct tape will.

DON'T use Neosporin under it when you run. The tape adhering to skin will cause your sock to rub the tape and not your toe. If you have a lubricant between you and the tape, it defeats the purpose. Same thing with a band-aid. The gauze part of the band-aid will just rub and make it worse. Otherwise ammoscanner's advice is great.

PS- I do the same thing with plastic tape to prevent blisters in heels.

Grab some 3M Medical Tape to wrap up any blisters. Worked me wonders at Burning Man.

20 yards worth is $4.80. If you have to change a small piece once a week or something, who cares?

For feet prep: I just use sweatblocker a day or two before. Rinse it off, dry your feet, then apply leuokotape where you traditionally hotspot during training. Then wear injinji's. I've done this for so many races, and never had blisters -- even with 100 milers in downpouring conditions. I never change socks as well.

As far as nips: https://www.amazon.com/3M-Transpore-Clear-1-Inch-10-Yard/dp/B005OFM6JE/ref=sr_1_13?ie=UTF8&qid=1492777051&sr=8-13 (stays on much better than band aids, and can also be used as part of a medical kit)

I buy this stuff: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005OFM6JE/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

$5 and it lasts a LONG time cause you only use two little squares. It absolutely will not come off from sweat or friction, it's godly. It's also not too bad to take off, but a bit easier in a hot shower.

Olive oil helps get the tape off without hurting them as much. Also recommend using something other than duct tape if that is what you are using. best stuff I found was the 3m Clear Transpor tape. It still allows breathing.

Vinegar is partially effective - it has been shown to kill off ~90% of microbes in a laboratory setting, but it's not as effective as substances that are made specifically for sanitizing, like StarSan, Saniclean (which requires a rinse afterward), or Iodophor.

u/The_RealSean · 1 pointr/HotPeppers

I found an unlikely winner in STAR SAN: https://www.amazon.com/Star-San-B0064O7YFA-San-32/dp/B0064O7YFA

It's an organic acid used for sanitizing brewing equipment. Go for a light mix with water in a spray bottle and you should be fine after one or two applications. I just wiped out an aphid infestation on my pear tree with it.

u/123rdb · 1 pointr/electronic_cigarette

Being a homebrewer, I recommend a soak in Oxyclean/PBW and then some Starsan for good measure.

I think sanitary welding refers to TIG. I know that is what is used in professional breweries.

As pretty much everyone else here has said, flush it with plenty of warm water.

I'm partial to doing a final rinse of both cumtubes and toys with diluted StarSan (a no rinse commercial disinfectant). Just be sure to make sure and rinse it again before using it again.

Could always resort to this stuff if you had to, but it's probably overkill. It's the soap they give you to wash up with the night before a surgical procedure.

u/InfiniteCuriousity · 1 pointr/AskDocs

I traditionally use Hibiclens Antimicrobial skin cleaner that is a Chlorhexidine Gluconate Solution 4.0% when I come into contact with something that is really dirty or that is likely bacteria-ridden (really dirty house work/yard work/bathroom cleaning, etc). Recently I saw that there are Chlorhexidine Gluconate 2% solutions on Amazon for much cheaper than the Hibiclens, but it says it is only for horses and dogs.

​

Is it possible to use the 2% solutions without skin irritation? Why are they just listed as for horses and dogs?

I'd use Vashe for dirty wounds, especially those with odor. Vashe does not hurt, does not harm healing tissue, but kills pathogens very effectively without contributing to antimicrobial resistance.

Also, if the wound looks pink/red and clean - cleansing with normal saline or wound wash is fine and actually the preferred method.

For dirty feet or other general areas that you want to cleanse well but also have open wounds, consider a chlorhexidine soap. it provides prolonged antimicrobial activity and when diluted with water doesn't irritate wounds. All of these products are used in wound clinics.

Here's Vashe for sale on Amazon.

Preparation:

getting the supplies

Agar agar powder. [US](https://www.amazon.com/Telephone-Product-Thailand-Powder-Ounce/dp/B01KMHY2OU/) [Europe](https://www.amazon.co.uk/Special-Ingredients-Premium-Gelatine-European/dp/B00EZMPMNE)

Always start with agar! And don't throw old fully colonized plates out. Some contaminants (e.g. mycogone, AKA wet bubble disease will only show up after full colonization (white blobs oozing yellow/orange fluid). and that one (mycogone) will fck up your grow hard, been there done that...

Light malt extract. [US](https://www.amazon.com/Organic-Light-Dried-Malt-Extract/dp/B007XYGBXQ/) [Europe](https://www.amazon.co.uk/Balliihoo-Light-Spraymalt-1Kg-Bag/dp/B0153BASSY/)

Containers for no pour agar (Pasty Plates). [US](https://www.amazon.com/Glad-Food-Storage-Containers-Round/dp/B000WGBMMM/) [Europe](https://www.flaschenbauer.de/einmachglaeser/sturzglaeser/sturzglas-225-ml-to-82) (maybe use Google translate on that site). Also if you are in North America there are Glad mini rounds, they are used in the original Pasty Plate tek. They also have [430ml jars](https://www.flaschenbauer.de/einmachglaeser/sturzglaeser/sturzglas-430-ml-to-82) suitable as substrate containers

A pressure cooker. Good ones are a b**ch to find in Europe. I wouldn't buy [that one](https://www.ebay.de/itm/Pressure-cooker-17L-Stainless-steel-Made-In-Turkey-Largest-Size/133128864948) or similar constructed ones, they are complete s**t, build up next to no pressure and need ungodly amounts of water. I have two of them, but had to do some haphazard MacGyveresqe hacking to get them to sterilize properly, I'll bring that up later.

I also have a Fagor Alu 22 (22 liters, fits eleven quart bottles), but I think that model went out of production in 2017 without a replacement. IMHO the only sane option in Europe right now, would be to order a Presto from the US, they're ~80€ + 40€ shipping, so not that bad. [Presto 23 quart PC](https://www.amazon.com/Presto-Aluminum-23-Quart-Pressure-Canner/dp/B073NCFL2L/)

Also on US websites like shroomery, you'll always read something like "sterilize 90min @ 15 psi". Pressure cookers in Europe usually have no gauges and only go to 50-70 kPa (~7-10 psi). It isn't as bad as it sounds, since sterilization time isn't linear with pressure/temperature. I've found I can get away with 120 min sterilization time for grains, 75 min for PF sub and 30 min for agar.

Scalpel handle and blades. [US](https://www.amazon.com/100-Scalpel-Blades-One-Handle/dp/B01MPX3JTI/) [Europe](https://www.amazon.co.uk/Swann-Morton-Handle-5-10-Blades/dp/B004OIAVJY/)

Isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol), 70%. [US](https://www.amazon.com/Amazon-Brand-Isopropyl-Antiseptic-Technical/dp/B07NFSFBXQ/) (dilute down to 70%, that percentage is best for sanitization [EU](https://www.amazon.co.uk/We-Can-Source-Ltd-Fingerprints/dp/B07PGB5X6Y/)

A rack to elevate your agar dishes while you do transfers, like these that come with microwave ovens (contaminants tend to collect on the SABs bottom).

A slightly wet towel to put the SAB on. Some people disagree on this, I use the towel to absorb the sprayed soap/water mix and not having that run off the table.

A clear box that's modified as a SAB. I use this one as a SAB, maybe they ship outside Germany. Anyway the manufacturer is kis.it (builds the monotub too), so I think they might be available elsewhere in Europe: https://www.obi.de/aufbewahrungsboxen/obi-allzweckbox-santos-transparent-oversize-140-l/p/3333341?template=PDP&box=box4

More clear boxes used to fruit bottles (basically a monotub, just with individual substrate containers). I use these as unmodded monos (no holes, no flipped lid, lids not latched): https://www.obi.de/aufbewahrungsboxen/obi-allzweckbox-cadiz-l-mit-4-rollen-transparent/p/1930387.

idk why you were downvoted but that's pretty much my suspicion. It's looking like Saniderm in the largest size they have might be the best bang for your buck but if you aren't constantly getting giant pieces and it's for personal use and you're not a tattoo artist this would be best https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0015TI2ZA/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=AGBSKTQNEDHK7&psc=1.

u/chemkara · 0 pointsr/SkincareAddiction
u/RyanGBaker · 0 pointsr/pcmasterrace

A lot of 70% isopropyl alcohols contain oils, which are obviously not good for leaving a clean surface on your CPU/heatsink.

I'd honestly try for 99%. This is what I buy.

You don't need much of it and you only really buy it once in a great while, so you may as well get the right stuff now and not worry about it again for a while.

u/chippychappo · 0 pointsr/AskMen

Get yourself some hibiclens. Add into daily shower routine - Wash as normal (regular soap) and finish with a quick scrub with this around balls / armpits & and that shit cuts down on the musk big time. Don’t use it on your face or in place of soap though it’s aggressive.
