    Hey I forgot to add about this. My neighbor (the one that recommended hot wax on lips) he was VERY convincing unfortunately :( and I was curious to try it.. but i was too chicken and not yet out of my mind to put HOT WAX on my lips. BUT i still wanted to do it because I'm friggin curious so I thought of an Alternative. I semi-burned my lips on hot soup :oops: (not to the point were smiling or talking hurted like hell :x or even skin peeling, just like a minor burn) My question is.. if a player somehow burns his lips, would that greatly effect his playing? Will it scar anything? I heard scarring is bad from a band camp instructor at my school.

    I recommend a change of instrument, maybe to drums. It's for your health, pain is not a component of trumpet playing :roll:

    No, it'll go away. Just be a little more "heads up" when it comes to:

    Soup (except for vichyssoise and gazpacho, those are cold soups)


    Hot chocolate

    Any hot food you have trouble tearing with your incisors.

    And watch out for hot cheese on pizza. I had a piece of cheese stick to the middle of my upper lip. When I yanked it off, some skin went with it............

    When I was younger, I was sliding around on an office chair while I was at the dinner table. Needless to say, the chair tipped forward, and I hit my lip hard on the edge of the table. I remember I couldn't go to my baseball practice that day because my lip became so swollen. I still have a scar about the size of a 2 -2mm BB in between the center and right side of my bottom lip.

    Lesson: Don't slide around on office chairs!
