    i also get these mat burns all the time.
    i asked some nurses here in the hospital where i work:

    1) wash the hands
    2) clean the skin around the wound with an antiseptic
    3) clean the wound with cool running water
    4) if necessary, use the antiseptic on the wound (polyvidone iodine is good, doesn't sting and keeps the wound moist => it's a myth that wounds heal faster/better when you leave them dry. dry = slower healing + bigger risk on infection)
    5) use a non-adhesive, moist-absorbing bandage (in Belgium it's something like Melolin, Stellaline, etc), that you have the change daily
    6) ibuprofen (maximum dose/day: 1200mg, some even say 2500mg); of acetaminophen/paracetamol (MD/day: 3,35g)

    i'm using this right now and i've got to say: it's healing quite nicely

    I would have made blatant fun of your for replying to a thread that has been dead for over a year. But you posted good information, so I won't :)

    Yeah, since we're doing the necro, good post by "bloody wanker". I'd like to add that I've read that airing out wounds is better is a myth. You're better off putting on bandages. Also. in my experience, I get lint and stuff into wounds that aren't covered, and they take longer to heal.

    It is true that your feet will toughen up, even though I have somewhat limited experience, I've seen this a few times with new people, and my theory is that you learn to unconsiously not to drag your feet over the mat and such. Basically it will fix itself after a while. Which it should've, after a year :P

    Another thing that I noticed from the OP's first post is that he refers to wounds, bruises and scratches on the knees - I'm too lazy to see if this was mentioned before, so it if was mentioned before, **** it, it's worth the recap.

    Use knee wraps/bands at all times. And if you can use knee pads with or without the knee wraps/bands, the better. Knee pads are on the same category as hand wraps for boxing. Use them.

    Wrestling kneepads for the knees. For the tops of your feet, avoid laying your feet flat whenever possible, and try to stay on the balls of your feet. This actually allows you to drive better and get better forward power. With your feet flat, you simply don't have as much leverage. You obviously won't always be able to keep your foot on the ball, and shouldn't try to. But simply going on the ball when you should will reduce the wear and tear on your feet a lot.

    i post this literally every time someone asks but hell it can't hurt to see it again: http://www.drugstore.com/products/pr...79&catid=44601

    Fucking magic for mat burn, blisters and scrapes. It is also the only thing that stays on while training and still lets you build calluses. Natural remedies are crap, slap some technology on that ****!

    Yeah, and any of the NewSkin/liquid bandage stuff kicks ass. Two coats of that, and you'll be set for a day or two.
