Break Time

Okay, I need a breather after that week. Remember me bitching about not meeting men? Remember when I used to talk about other stuff too? Seriously when did this turn into a dating blog?

So I burnt my arm the other day at work and I very much wish I could upload pictures from my phone to this here blog but I can't figure it out for the life of me. My camera is still in the shop (seriously, what the hell is taking them so long). Instead I'll tell you that it's 2 inches across and 1.5 inches down, bright red and blistery. I didn't go to a doctor because I am a dumbass.

I think bright red is good - doesn't that mean it's healing? Any help anyone? I would Google it but we all know that turns into thinking you're going to die no matter the severity of the initial problem. I'm Polysporin-ing (it's a word) this SOB all week.

Ya, well enjoy this hungover rambling, I'm sure I'll come right home from work and delete it.

Kthxbai !!

Go to a doctor.

Red means infected I thought? Anyway, when my little sister gave me that wretched cigarette burn on my arm, I just doused it in neosporin and hoped for the best.

My arm hasn't fallen off yet, so that must be a good sign?

Damn lady! How'd you manage to do that???

If it doesn't get better with the magic of polysporin... doctor might be best!

arms are good things to have.

Ouch. sounds nasty.

I would agree with the general consensus of going to the doctor.

Then again, I rarely take my own advice.

I would cut it off.

If you can't live with one arm then you can't live. ask that Def Leppard guy.

eh, i'd say it's OK as long as it stays a nice pinkish red, and doesn't look infected or start hurting more. neosporin and aloe both = good ideas.

Errant Gosling said...

Ouch. See above. Go to the doctor if its blistery. If the blistering subsides, you're ok.

Must have hurt -- sorry to hear that.

I don't know anything about burns but I would just put some neosporin on it and see what happens.
It SHOULD heal!

Ugh, at least you are getting dates! Mine would be a dating blog if I went out on a few :x

"it's 2 inches across and 1.5 inches down, bright red and blistery." That's what she said.

I'm sorry, I couldn't resist. Go see a doctor, woman!

I like hearing all about your dates - if only to live vicariously through someone who goes on some!

Ouch! I burnt my hand on a toaster oven once, I agree as long as its pink and not too blistery I don't think a doctor will tell you to do anything different than put some neosporin on it.
