Looking for some advice on hand management post tear so I can get back to lifting as fast and safe from future tears as possible.
So last week I pulled 595 for a dub with hook grip and a small chunk of skin tore open just above my callous (like towards the wrist) of my middle finger and not the callous itself. First time tearing anything on the hand bit of a strange spot
It’s healed fast and I’ve clipped off as much dead skin flap as I can. The thing is that there’s now a fairly prominent ridge left (maybe 1mm higher than surrounding skin and about as thick as my callous is). So if I pull I think this is going to catch and tear the whole callous/thickened skin area below it off.
Got some solid advice from @chris_ottawa for general maintenance using a safety razor to “shave” callouses down but dunno if it can still be applied in this case. Will take further general maintenance tips if there is any.
So anyways question is how should I approach this? Wait for it to come off naturally (maybe a long time), pull anyways and rip it smooth or grind/cut down?
