Re: Problem after and while playing tennis

it's really hard to have those blisters most of my friends that also play don't get them... I dunno maybe it is that my skin needs to adapt to the raquet......

fhuneeus, it's most likely that your hand needs to get used to the new racquet.

jus play as much as you want, and when it gets really bad, give a few days for your hand to heal, and you'll find your skin will harden, n you won't have the problem again.

when you get a new racquet, the grip rubs your hand in different areas that you're not used to. at least that's what I think it is...

I have a common tennis blister on the inner side of my right hand's thumb. I think it's here to stay.

Re: Problem after and while playing tennis

While watching tv i got the idea of uploading a picture of my hand so you could see what I have after playing a match with a raquet I had never used before (lended one)... here's the pic so you could help me:

Re: Problem after and while playing tennis

Well I'm actually not a begginer but lastly I've been trying various different raquets maybe because of that so much different grips being used.... I think it is a grip problem... The thing about latex I don't think it is like that I have no problem with erasers or pens as you mentioned.... and I wouldn't like to use a glove so I'll just wait to order my new head raquet and see how things go.....
also another question how do you put an overgrip on a raquet? it's like a tape you just roll on the grip??

Are you a beginner? If so, your hand will develop blisters and then callouses. It's normal.

If you're not a beginner and you are developing these problems as of late, check your grip to see if you've changed it. If it's not your grip, check with your dermatologist in case something has changed with your body's largest organ.

Try wearing a glove. If seen a few folks out there who wear a tennis glove on their right hand only (they are one-handed back hand players). They've worn them for years. The added benefit of course is less sun damage to the top of your hand.

Donīt wanna scare you but I have the same problem and I always thought itīs just my dry skin causing that problem. It got especially worse AFTER the matches. Well, turns out I have an allergy to latex. Maybe itīs not that bad with you and you just need a new grip, however you may think about it although itīs pretty seldom...I was pretty shocked when I found out but it cleared a lot of things up (using erasers, pens with grip and even my toothbrush were a problem). Good thing is, itīs just a local skin irritation and not the really bad version.

I am currently searching for grips without latex...anyone?

There are several good ones, like the white wilson pro overgrips, though they are a bit thick, and might interfere with the sixe of the grip.

Typically though, you want to stick with the same brand as the racquet, so Head Xtreme softs are thin enough and are good for preventing blisters.

My personal opinion, though I use a wilson ncode, is replacing the original with a softer one like the wilson leather grips. It's expensive, but lasts very long and is so comfortable when I hit.

The head replacements are usually like the one you have, though a good one my friend uses is the softac traction. It's cheap too, so you can get a couple for a good price.
