A 28-year-old female asked:
Yesterday i was handling raw meat and had an open blister after the meat came into contact with the wound i poured rubbing alcohol on it and rinsed?

Open sore: Lets hope the meat wasnt contaminated. A better approach would have using a bacterial ointment rather than alcohol. If you see any redness, pain or swelling in your hand contact your physician immediately and next time wear gloves.
