Way up on pointy little devil
Hay Guys Iím kind of new to climbing but I have a problem with flappers. I went bouldering Monday and realized i got a flapper. Nothing new right it kind of hurt like usual but I decided to make a few more attempts. I get back to my car and i realize that I have 2 more flappers with the skin all the way off. That makes 3 plus another one that is mostly healed. I want to know is this normal for beginners with hands that are not yet accustomed to the rigors of climbing. Also i would like to know the fastest way you have found for skin to regrow. Now I donít want to know what to do when you get a flapper just remedyís that speed up skin growth. Thanks for your help I wana get back out there ASAP.

Your best bet for a fast heal is to clean it well, apply some neosporin, and wrap it with a band aid. Then I wrap that band aid with climbing tape whilst I climb. The important thing is to keep the wound moist and covered until it is healed...contrary to popular belief that wounds need to "air dry" to heal...nope, skin grows best/fastest in a moist, bacteria free environment. Keep applying that 'sporin daily, better in no time.
