Blood blister: You need to keep pressure off the area. Use moleskin and cut a circle in it to put over the area. Then cut a second and third moleskin in the same way. Then the pressure will be on the moleskin and not on the blood blister. If this cdoes not relieve the symptoms, see your doctor. ...Read more

Did a lot of jumps and feet movement and I got a blood blister. Dancing again tomorrow. Any advice how to heal it overnight?

Better idea: Gotta disagree with doc. With injury skin, inflammation occurs which means the area becomes red, warm, tender and with swelling. Swelling/bleeding occurs under skin layers and causes bulging creating a protective fluid cushion called blister. As it heals, fluid will be resorbed or when no longer needed, blister opens and it drains. This takes about a week. Keep it covered and protected/stay off it. ...Read more

Dry blood: When a blood blister dries, it usually turns black. But if it is moist and black with redness of the surrounding skin it may be an infection. Infections can be serious when bacteria get into the blood. In such cases the symptoms include fever, chills and pain. Oral or IV antibiotics are used when this develops =medical treatment. ...Read more

Blood blister on 3rd toe of right foot should pop or what

The: The thing you need to know about blood blisters is once "popped, " they are very susceptible to infection. The bloody fluid is a perfect media for bacterial growth.

With that in mind (assuming you're in a state of good health, not a diabetic or have poor circulation or are taking any blood thinners), go ahead and pop it. Get it from the side, where the skin meets the blister, and use a sterile instrument. Wash it with soap and warm water, and keep it clean and dry with a dry, sterile dressing (a band aid is ok). Don't use any topical antibiotic like bacitracin, neosporin, etc. Just keep it clean and dry until it's no longer "open" (draining). You might see a light red ring around it after a day or so, which is normal inflammation you need to heal.

Watch for signs of infection: increased pain, increased drainage or pus, swelling, redness, foul odor. At the first sign of infection, head to your doctor for a prescription for an antibiotic.

Try not to get arrested for practicing medicine without a license! ...Read more

Is it safe to burst a blood blister on a diabetics foot? If not what can you do for it?

It: It depends on how large the blister is and for how long it has been present. Usually, in diabetic patients, it might be better to leave the blister alone. Nevertheless, if there are signs of infection (redness surrounding the blister or pus drainage coming out), then it's better to burst the blister.

In my practice, what I commonly do when I am faced with a diabetic patient who has a blood blister on his foot, I basically use a small scalpel to make a tiny incision into the blister, drain all the fluid that's inside, and then apply an antibiotic ointment with dsd over the skin. It is definitely not a good idea to try to remove the skin of the blister unless it appears very necrotic and loose. ...Read more

My podiatrist popped a large blood blister on my foot 3.5 wk ago. The area is still numb from the procedure and the part she cut to drain is black!

Go back for follow: Up. All you state is they popped a blister, this would not involve anything put puncturing the roof of the blister which would not cause any residual numbness, so I do not believe the numbness is a result of anything the doctor did. (If that's what they did). The black color may be an eschar or scab like lesion which again may be completely normal and will heal over time o r the doc can clean it ...Read more

Have it evaluated: Some causes of corns or calluses include: friction, pressure, repetitive trauma, and a limitation of joint motion. Some may develop bleeding under the callus resulting in a darkened discoloration of the underlying skin. You may benefit with the use of a special topical moisturize and the use of a pumice stone or an emory board. Consult with your podiatrist and determine the best approach for you. ...Read more
