Tearing strips

I finally gave up, after weeks of increasing discomfort with my right arm, I booked in to see my physiotherapist to get some relief. He confirmed I had injured myself at work, stupidly, when on the stairs, and had developed bursitis and a rotator cuff injury.

After deep tissue massage he tapped me up with non-allergenic tape as I’d previously reacted mildly to the regular kind. I was to take the tape off on Tuesday evening, however it had a different opinion and really didn’t want to vacate my body. The glue on this tape was so strong, and did eventually come off, but not without significant issue, and as I would discover at the physio the following day, had removed some skin; ouch.

He taped me up with a lighter tape this time, it should come off easier, apparently. Well, that was the plan, but really didn’t pan out unfortunately. Indeed it did come off quicker, however when I looked in the mirror another stop off skin was off. At the rate it’s coming off I’ll be able to audition for a Marvel character without makeup.

Before my visit to the physio on Wednesday I’d use hair removal cream to help with the bandages not sticking so badly, what a bad experience this was. The first application didn’t work for me requiring a second go. However, doing it a second time actually has caused my skin to have a burning sensation which really sucks when showering. Hopefully that sensation passes quickly.
