If you've seen my posts about this rash.. you'll understand..

I saw a friend the other night who is the fire dept and was asking him about it.. he said to scratch it raw and so it opens up and pour bleach on it 2 -3xs a day. What?! Sounds incredibly painful.

How you ever cleaned a wound with straight bleach??

That does not sound safe! Go with alcohol or peroxide...soap and water...anything but bleach. You are going to kill your tissue.
