That bit of your hand wouldn't get damaged if you weren't pulling on jugs, serves you right.

I got my first one in my late 20s by being stupid, now have two of decent size and a couple more starting. Since your body is growing new tissue it seems like it might be a good idea to stretch a lot so it doesn't contract as much....but that's not based on any real science, just me making stuff up.

Anyway, I haven't lost significant range of motion after nearly 20 years, and it doesn't noticeably affect my climbing. The itchiness and pain went away after a couple of months yet the minor blemish on my otherwise flawless body is often difficult to accept. I'm working through the issues though and slowly realising that if people only valued me for my physical perfection, then they weren't really my friends at all.
