well the blood satins seem to have just gone away except for the one that was under the mooring line, makes me wonder if washing the decks is a waste of time for other stuff

From link;

This
method is less painful than drilling of the
nail plate, the procedure takes only a few seconds
as against


five to ten minutes for drilling, and the
temperature


of the probe provides comparative
sterility.

Woodland

-------------------------------------------

OK that works I guess.

I have done it several times and use the flame only to sterilize the end of the paper clip.

I use the "drill" method but the drilling is done with very light pressure.

And it does not take 5-10 minutes. 30-45 seconds, tops.

The trick is to cut the paper clip with dikes perpendicularly which gives one a nice sharp, flat surface to cut with, much like a flat hole saw.

Works for me (once on myself) and others I have helped.

My though would be that the patient may be a little apprehensive watching the glowing tip approaching the finger. Trust or rum should help I imagine.

But back on topic.

I like the ignore it and it will wear/wash away idea. If not, my vote is for peroxide. Drip it on, watch it foam.

I dropped a cast iron sink on my thumb once and after tossing & turning (pissing off the wife) I went to urgent care at 1AM. The Dr drilled by hand with a needle after which I thought if it was that simple I'd have done it myself. So that's my plan - I like the heated copper needle idea(sterile) at least I'd use it on myself. there is no pain involved that's already there and there's immediate relief.

If you use a "needle" that has a tapered sharp point it often is a small hole that clots over and the pressure builds again.
