: I'm a new upright player, been playing for about 2 months and I find myself getting these really bad blister on my fingers (filled with both water and blood). I would like to know how do you get rid of them properly and is there any way to provent them. Thanks

Whatever you do, don't pop them! The juice inside helps them heal. Keep
playing, they'll eventually be callouses. If you can stand the pain, don't wait
for the blister to heal before playing again. I think it speeds up the
callousing process. After they've healed you can apply some tincture of
benzoin, that helps toughen and protect the skin.
