Macro Monday - Warning Label Needed or Why am I a Klutz?

If you dropped by for my Scavenger Hunt Sunday entry click on the link.

It's been awhile since I've done a Macro Monday so I thought I would participate today.  Granted my subject material is a bit weird, maybe even gross to some so don't look if you may be squeamish.

Yesterday I sat down to drink a cup of coffee with my husband and somehow I managed to dump it in my lap.  Needless to say it was HOT coffee and I jumped up, spilling more onto myself and my chair.  Quickly grabbed the nightgown I was wearing holding it away from my leg and went to assess the damage. 

It was red and I put some ice on it for about 5-10 minutes and called it good.
Later in the day I discovered this:

Ouch!  It was forming a water blister and stung like crazy.  This was on my upper thigh area.

I know it's sort of gross but hey, it happened and any more I try to document even the odd daily things like this.

By the end of the night when I went to bed the blister had expanded tremendously.

You can see a slight indentation on the blister but that later filled with water as well and it was really red around the bottom of the blister.  I spent about 45 minutes while watch Iron Chef holding a cold wash cloth over the blister and eventually the burning sensation went away.  Some time during the night I woke up and touch my leg and discovered that part of the fluid was draining.  I got up and sure enough there was a tiny pinhole in the blister where the water was draining out of.  By this morning most of it was gone so I covered the burn with gauze and some Neosporin to keep it from rubbing the skin off with my jeans and avoiding possible infection.

So why didn't my coffee cup have a "warning label" on it that the coffee was hot!  Better question....Why am I such a klutz at times!!!


  1. At first I thought you were showing a beautiful texture, but then I scrolled down! :) We photogs do like to document everything!

  2. Hi Ida,

    Ouch! I'm sorry to hear you burned yourself and see you have quite the blister. I hope by the time you read this you will be feeling better.

  3. Yes, in those blister macro looks monstrous. Greetings.

  4. Ouch! that looks painful. Great capture!

  5. Oh, my....I know the feeling. It hurts so badly. I use a Rx called Furacin which is for burns. It is yellow and it is a miracle ointment. I am a far worse klutz that me. Just click up wt the top of my blog where the followers appear and you can add your name. I will join up with you, too. Do not know how to do the Linky thing but maybe soon I will figure it out. Take care of that mean blister. genie

  6. Very nice picture ! It even hurts when I look at it !

  7. ow Ow OW!! That looks very painful Ida!!
    Hope it clears up soon! ...and gross or not your photo is a good capture! Would this count as a selfie? *lol*

  8. OUCH!! Dang girl, you got yourself good!

  9. Holy cow, that's a big blister. Be very careful, because those types of blisters can get infected very easily. No more coffee for you!

  10. You sound a lot like me because I'm a klutz at times too. That looks like a nasty burn -- probably 2nd degree considering it blistered. Sorry about that. :-(
