ive only had this like a week? skated twice not super hard though, didnt sweat a lot, but shit smellllsssssss, ive got 4 more weeks to go and i know this shit is going to reallllyyy bother me..


ive heard fabreeze, buttt i think moister is what is causing the problem, so i dont think using a liquid is the answer, cause that would just make it worse...


i dont really know what im talking about, just guessing, but is there a way to at least aid this process so its not awful, or am i fucked.

Try talcum powder i know it absorbs moisture...although i never had a cast before i think it might be worth a shot

baby powder makes sense, but i dont wanna put it like underrrrr the cast on my skin, maybe around the edges, iono, i know your skin gets all nasty and slimy and shit under there so im not really sure if putting anything directly on it would be the smartest idea...i tried it around the edges and it didnt really do anything haha.

Mine never smelled, but I would think baking soda would be the best answer. Or just replace the whole cast.

I've had whole leg casts twice on my left leg. Both times, I would dump loads of baby powder into my cast, and it would make it smell great. When the nurses were cutting the casts off each time, they always thanked me for using baby powder. It looked kind of gross by the time they pulled the cast off, but my skin was in really good condition and it smelled great instead of like death. I don't know why you are so afraid of baby powder, but baking soda and other shit is gonna stink.

True true i thought i have my shit on for 6 weeks. Another 8 weeks later i got another one on. If you have to get another ( I dont put that curse on you ) its well worth it so you dont got to bag your shit every shower.

Check out Sani cast. Its a product you can buy online. It comes with a plastic thing that you can attach a cleansing pad to and it cleans out your cast. I just broke my arm last week and picked one up.. The thing works great...
