Laura Posted March 30, 2010 Share Posted March 30, 2010 I had to post this, as I have been up most of the night with throbbing pain...it felt like my hand was burning... I gave myself a nasty blister on my thumb by mowing the lawn on Sunday....I left the wound open, to heal, but also put NEW SKIN liquid bandage on it to keep it covered....I worked on my tanks for a couple of hours yesterday....cleaning, moving this or that...I did come in contact with many soft corals and a couple of anemones...I went to bed without any symptoms...I was awake at 12, 1 and 3AM, not being able to bear the pain and throbbing of my swollen thumb... I could not even bend it...I finally wrapped my hand in a cold cloth, took 800mg of Advil, and finally fell asleep.... today my thumb looks like this.........................ouch!!! Wear gloves or a tight bandage because palytoxin is a killer!!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
