Leave it alone.: I generally don't recommend popping blisters of any kind unless they are painful, because of the risk of infection. If it's not bothering you, cover it with a bandaid. If it itches, apply Hydrocortisone cream 2-3 times a day. If it gets painful or tender, or develops a red ring around it, see your doctor or a dermatologist. ...Read more

I have sunburn around my lower face with lots of small blisters, a few have now started to turn white, what is it? And what is the best treatment?
Won'tGetBurnedAgain: The ones that have turned white may be infected so best to gently wash with soap and water using a washcloth to break them up, then apply a thin layer of an antibacterial ointment. If it starts to spread or increase in pain, start throbbing and feel like you got sunburned again, see your doctor. Use plenty of sunblock in the future, and add some extra to that area, it'll be sensitive for a while ...Read more
Varied.: It depends on the size, location and whether there is fluid in the blister. If there is fluid, sterilize a pin and puncture the roof of the blister.
