I think that I will try blogging again. I will post mostly news that I find on the web, and try to add a few comments.

Fingerprint detail on male finger

Lately, I have been devoting a lot of attention to healing the skin on my right thumb.

Last year, I worked in a plastic bag factory, and it caused havoc on my skin. I do not quite understand how it did, but it did. The thumb print almost wore off.

To get it to heal, I have been as gentle with it as possible. I have also devoted a lot attention to keeping it moisturized with petroleum jelly.

In the last week or so, the finger print has finally begun to look complete. Before, you could still see the finger print, if you hold it up to the light, but you really had to look for it. Now, you can see the finger print in almost any light.

Unfortunately, eczema has started to appear on the thumb. It is a small problem compared to what I suffered.

This is so meaningful to me, because not having a thumb print means that it is hard to feel the sensuous feeling of hosiery. Finger prints actually allow us to distinguish the difference between different sensations.

I believe that hosiery is for the eyes and the hands. So, it is really important to keep our hands in good condition.

Thank you for reading!


  1. Good to hear from you again! Take care my friend! :)


    1. Thanks, Andreas! Hopefully, I'll keep finding stuff to write about. I feel like I am all ready running out of stuff.

  2. I suggest to consider asking for worker's compensation. This is not normal, shouldn't happen at a job. They should provide gloves for you.

    1. They did offer gloves.

      Unfortunately, there is no way of proving that the problem happened because of work.
