Pinterest is dangerous. Any chance it’s minor frostbite? When I had a foot injury, my doc warned me that using ice packs without wrapping them in a towel first or using them for more than 20 minutes at a time could cause minor frostbite. I’m thinking maybe it is because alcohol and hot water shouldn’t cause any issue but if you put frostbite in hot water…

Yikes! I’ve just made a mental note NOT to do the rubbing alcohol + water = ice pack trick!

It actually looks like frostbite… Hope it goes away soon!

I’m betting it’s more likely to be frostbite (it’ll “pink” right up when you put hot water on it). Rubbing alcohol shouldn’t react with hot water to “burn” you, unless you’re allergic to rubbing alcohol.

(Joint response from me, a nurse & my mom, a chemist.)

Don’t feel stupid! I did this to myself ages ago when I was a swimmer. Those bags get way colder than regular ice. Also… placing them on wet skin doesn’t help. I have found as long as you wrap them in a dish cloth or something they are ok. Also, I wouldn’t use them for more than 10-15 min at a time.

 Hope it feels better soon!
