    It has been a while (Don't click if you don't like blood )

    This is the worst of it, got my knee, shin, left hand, and chest. Good thing I was in front of my house. Got the wind knocked out of me. The ringing ears, felt like passing out, didn't make it inside but made it to the car port haha.


    Might have to super glue those 3 darker gashes.

    Ouch, ouch and ouch. That's not a super glue solve ... good wrap after a good scrub/rinse and some neosporin! ow!

    <edit> upon closer look - got some butterfly bandages? That will help some of those gashes close. You crash into a cactus or something? (j/k), still ow.

    Clean the whole thing up really well Fuzzy, Betadine is THE BEST STUFF to clean it up with, and lets not forget you just got over that thumb thing and don't want to risk an infection in that hulk of a mess you have going there so pay special attention to the three deeper wounds, after you clean them up well pinch them closed and apply the crazy glue to the surface so that your sealing it closed on the outside only. Do not put glue inside the wounds! BTW your pretty ****in' tough........for a girl!

    Maybe, this is the first time in years. I was just messing around trying to do sweet stuff and got tangled with my bike while flying over my handlebars. Got fast reaction to cover my face so the bad stuff is right there on the arm.

    I just got max strength neosporin and it has failed me. I also bought butterfly bandages but I need super glue otherwise they aren't sticking atm.

    Yea I know the drill.... I don't know if I should use super glue for this. Some gashes are deep enough but the way they are I don't know if I should. They are more like holes and gluing them could possibly look worse then letting them be. I'll wait till it stops oozing.

    The wounds do look more like holes - I don't know that super glue would work on something like that.

    I was joking about the shotgun It'd be different if I was a "roadie" or whatever but I'm not. I've fallen off my bike numerous times and got gnarly scars or whatever. Thought I'd share since it has been a while

    Yerck... I did that 30 years ago by flying over the handlebars on my converted-Varsity mountain bike. I just taped up the worst and let 'em heal. I still have the scars on my left elbow.

    I did a similar job recently when a stick got stuck in my rear wheel and I "slid into home". If I hadn't banged my elbow on the pavement, I wouldn't have spilled the cup of coffee I was carrying. As it was, I split it open, and had it sewed up at the ER. The doc said it would have healed on its own, but since I work in a hospital now (not the one that sewed me up), I thought it prudent to close the wound. MRSA and VRSA aren't things to mess around with.

    Sorry about your tumble fuzzbox. That's never fun. In the old day we'd use gauze pads and medical tape for those big scrapes. And Neosporin. Or if you want to go old school there's iodine or mercurichrome instead of Neosporin, but I wouldn't recommend them.

    I recommend a two week holiday to someplace warm and sunny, the warmth a will help ease the stiffness in the muscles and the sun wil help to dissolve the congealed blood in the bruise. Also recommend the application of ethanol (rum in particular)to the wound by the internal route. Heal quick, Lady Fuzzbox.

    I can't see the photo, but I vote you wait for scarring completion and then work it topographically into a new tatt.
