Clearly I wasn't satisfied with a broken thumb …

Note the attractive rash beneath the thumb. Allergic to the paper tape that holds my splint on.

Also, iPad: What's with the arm-widening foreshortening? Harsh!

In good news, swelling and bruising well down, gouges healing. Hurrah!

That looks painful! The allergy is just Sod's Law, isn't it? Get well soon *hugs*

Re: Ouch
The break is a bit achey, but I'll find out tomorrow how well it's healing. Hopefully fine: just USELESS for all the crafty stuff I had lined up to knock over this month.

The allergy was more itchy than stingy once the tape came off. Happily, I had some skin cream that helped soothe it, and the chemist stocks hypoallergenic tape! But yes, Sod's law indeed! It's like when I had a broken nose and caught a cold! Actually, it's nowhere near that bad ;-)

I get that rash! And I seem to have passed on that particular gene to all my children. Lucky them!

Hope all continues to heal well.

I am usually quite good about adhesives, but then, I usually don't have them on day after day. I have a good friend who is hopeless with all of them, and it's always grimly amusing when she ends up looking as though she has gone through a thresher whenever she has a relatively minor injury as she has to use bandages rather than band-aids. HURRAH for the people who make hypoallergenic dressings that work well enough for most of us!

I hope the rash goes away by itself, having a broken thumb is bad enough. :S

Ouchie! Just can't catch a break! *hugs*

Oh no! What did you do to yourself this time? *hugs*

OMG! HOW DID I NOT KNOW YOU'D BROKEN YOUR THUMB?! Right, that does it, I'm moving out from under this rock right this instant. Now I understand that one seemingly random comment in chat a couple of weeks ago about throbbing thumbs. OMG again - I'm so glad you're all right-ish!!!
