I got an splinter today, a small piece of hair got under my skin, tried to bite it off, it went inside and I got a blister, can it go into my bloodstream?

No but: It can cause an infection and THAT can go into your bloodstream. You have to monitor that hair splinter closely, if it swells up, gets purulent (pus coming out), hurts, gets hot, etc. Signs of abscess then you need to get medical attention right away. Hope this helps and thanks for trusting HealthTap. ...Read more

Normal healing: When our bodies sustain an injury, the immediate response is inflammation (red, hot, tender swelling). This is the body bringing healing factors to the area and also the veins expand to carry bad stuff away. The nerves in the area respond to this inflammation in varying intensity as things heal from pain to itching and possibly with numbness. This is a normal part of healing. ...Read more

Its has been five days after my histofreeze, burn skin is getting small blisters, why is that? Will my scarring will stay red?

This is normal: Typically after freezing, the treated skin will blister or scab up within a few days. The swelling may be worse two or three days after treatment. The scab will come off in a week or two, leaving a pink scar. The pinkness takes another few weeks to fade, leaving either a pale area or hopefully no scar. If the redness seems extreme or the area becomes painful and swollen that can mean infection. ...Read more

I saw a small blister on my inner thigh during the weekend, I have been keeping a band aid on it but more skin comes off after the band aid is off.

Maceration: Dead skin which is occluded beneath a bandage will stay moist and easily peel off when the bandage is removed. In some cases keeping a wound moist is beneficial, such as with an abscess. Options for avoiding this recurrent moisture problem include leaving the wound open to air when not engaged in activities that increase risk of infection, or using non-adherent type bandages. ...Read more
