Just before Thanksgiving Franklin guinea pig bit me. It was my fault. I put my finger in front of his face. He thought it was a treat. It wasn’t. The wound was on the back of my finger near the top. I put a Bandaid on it and proceeded to change the Bandaid every day. The original wound healed nicely but I have been left with serious skin irritation from either the adhesive or the latex. Either way I can’t knit with the Ella Rae classic yarn until this heals. The yarn is just scratchy enough to keep the skin irritated. I guess I’ll be sock knitting for the next few days.

    Bandaids do that to me too as well as the adhesive tape doctors use. Even as little as a few hours causes my skin to do that. Antibiotic ointment helps.

    OUCH! I can fully sympathize with your problem 😦 I, too, am allergic to tape/bandaids etc. Julie is right, the antibiotic ointment with a bit of gauze over it will heal it up quickly 🙂 Hope it feels better soon!

    That’s no fun! Hope it heals quickly. 🙂
