Something very interesting is going to happen to people if they find themselves in a full-scale collapse. While many of us work behind keys, we poke at phones and we hold video game controllers, we don’t do a lot of hard work with our hands.

Our soft little hands are going to be shocked when they realize that things like building, gardening, blacksmithing and a whole host of other tasks that have to be handled become daily life.

Burns and Cuts in a Collapse - You can count on cuts, blisters, bruises and burns. Your hands are going to need time to adapt but you are always going to get cut and you need to treat them and heal them fast. Remember, if you have daily job for food, water or something else, you cannot call out when survival is involved. There will not be people to step in for you while you nurse an injury.

What do you think will happen to your hands after a week of this hard work.

You can count on cuts, blisters, bruises and burns. Your hands are going to need time to adapt but you are always going to get cut and you need to treat them and heal them fast. Remember, if you have a daily job for food, water or something else, you cannot call out when survival is involved. There will not be people to step in for you while you nurse an injury.

Instead, you need to become a pro at treating your hands. You will want to think about being ready to deal with cuts and burns in a collapse. The good news is we have a great resource on Treating Burns that you can review for yourself.

Cuts can be treated in a number of ways. However, if there is one recommendation that will do you well its to start stocking up on rolled gauze. This stuff is dirt cheap and can be used for all sorts of medical applications. Rolled gauze can be replaced using some of the right plants but they are not as absorbent as that great rolled gauze product.

While you don’t need to become a doctor to survive in the collapse, basic medical training and wound treatment are going to be a must when the doctors are gone.
