    Ok, i was playing on clay yesterday, i was only hitting for about an hour but it was a hard, constant hitting and just in that one hour i developed a big blister, on the 2nd to last shot i hit i ripped it open and now it kills, its about the size of a nickel and its all raw skin, i couldnt play tennis today, is there anyway to make it heal faster or even play with it?

    Borg used to tape his palm to prevent blisters. Or you get a golf glove, racketball glove - at least you could get on the court.

    I did the exact same thing yesterday. I cut off the dead skin and put some New Skin (liquid bandage) on it. That was the wrong move because if freakin killed. I've been putting neosporin on it and I might try to hit today. I'm going to put a bandaide and tape it up but I know it'll still hurt.

    you could try mole skin or new skin. It is a very tough bandage that adheres very well to skin. Alot of athletes use it, just make sure you put a little pad over the actual cut so it won't rip the new skin when you pull the bandage off.
    Hope this helps

    Be patient and wait a couple of days before playing again, really. If you're in the middle of a tournament or something, try some tape for example.

    If there's raw skin showing I'd stay away from the New Skin. I used that stuff on a blister I had yesterday and was yelling in pain. I thought my skin was going to start bubbling up and get infected. It reminded me of that scene in Fight Club (ok maybe not that bad).
