    going to bjj class with poison ivy?

    Shop Now
    I got one itchy poison ivy patch on my wrist. I can probably cover it up with cloth and a band-aid, but it feels weird having to hide something and I freak out when someone grabs my wrist that their gonna rip off the band-aid and freak out. Its kinda gross looking.

    I went once before with it and had a hard time keeping the bandaid on...now i relaize that was probably pretty stupid after reading about staph infection...

    so should I just wait till it clears up? or cover it as best I can and go?

    yeah probably...i know in Muay Thai they do but i dont remeber if I saw anyone wearing e during bjj. I don't have any but that's what the cloth is for. Was just gonna put a band-aid on it and wrap cloth around my wrist

    I'd say skip till it's cleared up.

    Call your instructor. Explain. Ask if they have recommendations, or if you should skip, or just come watch that time.
    Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

    If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.
