Do you mean when they start pealing off and you can just pull it off painlessly or when it f**king rips half your finger off between the callous and your knuckle?

I try and keep on top of doing the first one, in order to stop the 2nd one from EVER happening again!

Just cut the loose skin off and leave them! They will dry up pretty quick and give it a week-9days and you are good to go.


Cheers mate! Watched 2009 worlds finals yesterday and saw you rip your hands up so was going to ask you about it.

i saw your hands mate and mine were exactly the same when i competed last year, the next few days they were a bit sensitive but honestly within a week you will be good to go. DONT put anything on them as it will slow down the healing, just keep the open sores clean and it will be ok.

I used to tear a callous every 8-9 weeks until I finally listened to my missus Roll-Eyes

I now use a pedegg on them twice a week and use hand cream 3-4 times a day, since doing this they've not even looked like tearing again (5-6 months now).

Just man up and be a girl about it all.

Cheers

when mine start to build up I shave them off with a thin old skool shaving razor, it's like a knife through butter. Never had a problem since.
