    Ya...I've got a few spots from crashes that when my arms and legs get tan in the summer show up as white spots. Scarred for life. That's me.

    I have freckles and those spots look like someone took an eraser to my freckles. Kinda funny.
    I'm sure when you were getting to the point of blowing nothing was obvious but making the pain stop...I don't know about you but after the fact I always look back at those moments and think 'why didn't I just keep going' but at the time there wasn't enough oxygen on the planet to make me take one more pedal stroke.

    So I get a tingling sensation in one of my hands occasionally like a dead leg feeling especially when I forget to wear gloves. Nothing that really bothers me but I wonder if it is from landing on it a few crits back. Has anyone experienced this and is it just bruising or non related?

    You probably did some nerve damage. It may take some time to regenerate.

    When I broke my collar bone, the jagged bone did some nerve damage that made it feel like my forearm had drying wood glue all over it. Kind of crunchy/flaky/sharp feeling. It went away completely.

    Same with my shoulder. Sometimes it's sharp, sometimes tingly, sometimes like an itchy rash. It comes and goes.

    If you want to know what my shoulder looks like, take a look at the shots of Ted King yesterday. Same injury, same place.

    I have been doing this and it works well. I am using an arm warmer over the Saran wrap.

    So, what is everyone favorite NSAID for bruising/road rash?

    Aleve really hasen't been cutting it for me and I will probably pair it with tylenol tomorrow. I just hate using acetaminophen.

    I re-hosted Ex's article on gdocs so you don't have to download it.

    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...it?usp=sharing

    Also, if you crashed into poison oak I recommend you do the whole process.

    hot shower
    scrub
    scrub more
    pat dry with sterile bandage
    apply tegaderm

    then just go ahead and shoot yourself in the ****ing head. It ain't worth living with poison oak all over your body. technu, zanafel, heroine and sandpaper; I tried 'em all.

    so if you ever have road rash and are thinking "this tegaderm is expensive, how about new skin spray".

    I say go for it. That was we can commiserate about what it feels like. I need someone else who knows.

    Update from OP

    The last of the scarring has now faded away. I'm still a faithful tagaderm user.

    Got a question:

    I have a scab from a "crash" that happened 3 weeks ago. It's taking a while to dry up. This might sound disgusting, but I tried to pry it open but I'm not sure if it's all dried up underneath. The light wounds surrounding it has already dried up and I removed by myself without no issues (it's not that deep surrounding it).

    Do I just let it go by itself? It's been about 3 weeks now. I'm probably getting impatient but this is my first cycling related wound.

    Thanks.

    It will come off on its own or with very little effort. It's not going to heal under there and not release the scab. Likely there's just a small area in the middle holding everything together. If it's really bugging you, soak it for a long time and see if it loosens up.

    Thanks.

    It actually came off today. I wore knee warmers and it just came off with it, lol.

    I wish this thread only appeared after breakfast hours were over.

    Good luck, heal fast, ride on.

    Lately, a big favorite for me is the tubular bandage with non-stick pads and neosporin. I think I like it better than tegaderm in the early days.

    Hmm. Can the tube net go up the hip to hold on a pad up there?

    They are impressive. On tv, you'll see pros racing with them holding pads up during TdF stages, on knees and elbows. They stay on my kids, who are quite active.
