I crashed (road rash question)
My second race didn't go well. I'm pretty sure I clipped my pedal on the pavement and then slid out. I'm fine, but my good pair of bibs are shredded and my 2 week old toupe is all chewed up. My bike is fine though and I guess that is most important.
So I fought with the pavement and it won, and now my leg/hip/butt is roughed up good.
Regarding the road rash: I cleaned it all and put a big bandages with tape over the worst parts. However, the wounds are weeping a lot so I have to change them fairly often. The changing of the bandage is very traumatic for me. the bandages I am using (Johnson and Johnson Gauze pads) are sticking to the skin/rash so I have to peal them off. Is this just part of the process or should I be using some other kind of material to cover the rash? Does sticking delay the healing or does it not really matter?
