Friday....Are you there??? - page 2

A 2nd grader just came up (It's only 0830 here), and said his teacher told him to come and have me pop his pimple. POP HIS PIMPLE?! I kindly informed him that that is not something I do, nor do I... Read More

    Pilli multigemini. My husband gets that too, and they drive him bananas with the itching, so I'm allowed to pluck those. But then I start to go after his forehead blackheads, and he gets tired of that quickly.

    edit: I forgot to "quote" - in response to the multiple hair per shaft.
    I had no idea that this had a name!! Thank you, and good to know I am not alone.

    Ew. You guys are disgusting. Even for nurses...
    So then I probably shouldn't mention the huge tunneling sacral wound my patient had where the various bones were crumbling, the muscles were necrotic and liquifying, and if you weren't careful you could snag your glove on her hip bone. The one we dressed with Dakin's solution to keep the odor down??

    Its weird because I get grossed out by pimple popping videos but I love seeing gross hospital stuff. I once saw a rectal/vaginal fistula caused by rectal cancer and it smelled like rotting flesh.

    My 14 year old slept next to my bed in a sleeping bag last night - ear infection/pain. He was asleep, I was reading. I glanced down at him and noticed he is starting to get a few blackheads and pimples. There was one large blackhead on his nose that I really really wanted to pop.

    I can sort of understand now why my mom would lay me across her lap under a light and pop my blackheads/zits when I was a teen. I HATED IT!! Sometimes she would use a bobby pin on the ones in my ears! It hurt!!

    I do miss assisting with lancing abscesses in the ER. The good ol' I&D.

    And we talk about flushing ears? That's my FAVORITE!!!!

    Gaping wounds do not freak me out. But the pus is too much. Yucky.

    I had a student come in about a week ago c/o muffled heading x2 weeks. Took a look in his ear and just a huge wad of compacted wax. Wasn't something I was going to touch since it was deep and compacted, but I told him to follow up with his PCP for proper removal. I'm a little jealous of that office!

    My daughter and I can spend hours on YouTube watching the cebaceous cysts getting squeezed. Good times!
