I kept sticking ice packs on it, I never go to a doctor unless life threatening. Stubborn I guess or don't like paying them so much money for it.

Needless to say "Don't Try this at Home" Not looking forward to the peeling process.

I did this once with a two cycle gas hole auger while digging post holes for a deck. The peeling process was accelerated as later in the week I was moving bags of concrete on my shoulder and it sucked the skin off my forearm. FAILDOZER. surprised that scar is gone, but hey it was like 10 years ago.
