So, stupid me.

I was working with gasoline powered pressure washer on Saturday, and like an idiot, I rested my left hand against the engine to pull start it, and burned the tip of my left finger. It's a small second degree burn, right where my fingertip normally touches the string.

It blistered and I drained it with a syringe. But any pressure is seriously painful.

Until it heals, I'm thinking just play without my pinky, or are there any other suggestions that don't involve Jack Daniels and a bloody fretboard?

As long as the skin isn't broken surgical spirits is helpful. Although if it is broken you'll sure as hell know as it will sting like absolute mad when you put it on.

Wrap it in a padded waterproof plaster.

I recently did this to fingers 1-3 on my fretting hand after moving into an apartment with an electric-coil stovetop and having a lackadaisical conversation with my eggs one morning... I just used band-aids. It still hurt but not as bad as without them, and it was much better after a couple days anyway.
