Burn on throwing fingers

I was dumb yesterday and managed to burn (and blister up) the pad of my thumb, halfway down my middle finger, and the pad of my ring finger on my throwing hand. I have my one big sanctioned event of the year next weekend. Does anyone have any suggestions for accelerated healing of this sort of thing?

You could check with Barry Bonds!

My wife gets this stuff from a friend called green goop or something like that. It's a home-brew concoction of herbs, olive oil and beeswax. It really works great on rashes, cuts and minor injuries.

Other than that, I would think anything with cortisone would help with healing.

No suggestion on a quick heal, unfortunately.

I once saw Discflinger burn the holy living piss outta his throwing hand while cooking on a campfire. He played through the pain the whole weekend with a pretty good charring.

So, think of this more as a "mind over matter" sort of pep talk.

Id say you are F'd for the most part. In my previous life I burned my hands all the time but there really isn't crap that helps outside of treatment RIGHT after it happens to prevent blistering etc...

Have a golf glove you can practice with?! that's a bummer' You have a while for it to heal but sounds pretty bad too which in that case you might just want to go get some prescription stuff vs an aloe vera gel.

Where's the optimism boys and girls? Maybe I'll try some of the shots in the dark. Worst case I'm gonna tape up the fingers next weekend and throw through it. I do have 7 days to go until I need to play. Putting in the meantime shouldn't hurt.

I just had a son 4 months ago, and as such haven't played a single sanctioned event in a full year. This one was my time to try and shine. No excuses. I'll still do it.

yeah as much as it sucks just using them and building the skin strength back up is going to be the biggest thing.
