How to heal a blister without popping?

How to heal a blister without popping?

Leave it alone: A simple blister, that is one that is not in an area that is constantly under pressure, such as on the buttock, will gradually subside in size and begin to heal from within. Popping it, though tempting, is only cosmetic, and if you are in any way immunocompromised puts you at risk of infection. So leave it alone, and if it is sore or red, apply a little topical Bacitracin to keep the skin soft. ...Read more

How do I know if my blister needs popping?

Most don't: Blisters form as a protection to the raw and injured skin underneath. Most blisters technically do not need popping. Sometimes they will be drained as they are large and painful and impede normal movement of a body part...Even then they are drained so the bliser skin still lies flat on the underneath skin to protect it. They usually "pop" on their own through normal body movement. ...Read more
