Weird, quick reply field would not work.

Great question Matt. The only thing I do/can think of is:

1: Do not use that spot on finger for a while
2: To prevent same in the first place; have system of rotation for finger pricking.

I use the sides, front and lower 'pad' of each upper knuckle portion of each finger including thumbs. It's easy to forget to rotate and I find myself using the same fingers when I'm not being conscious.

A lot of people don't think to use the actual side of the finger. I mean the area on each side of the finger nail.

As well, another thing is to pick the least penetrating setting on poker device.

Hope this helps,

Josh

I use the sides of my fingers, fewer nerves there so it doesnt get as sore as using fingertips. I test 3 times per side then move on to the next finger so I usually end up using one finger per day. I also use the fleshy part of my palm on the edge of my hand under my pinky and the fleshy part by my thumb. So on one hand I've got 24 tests i can do just on my fingers, and easily anothr 20 in the fleshy parts of my palm, and thats just on ONE hand.
