Pus is never good: Pus is never a good thing. In general, we don't recommend draining blisters or pulling off skin as it's sterile if unbroken and non-sterile once broken. Regardless, if you see pus, it's now time to see your GP. If you can't get there today, go to closest A&E. ...Read more

Blister Care: Here is a post from my blog on blister care. It will heal, but you basically removed up to 1/2 of your skin protection. Soak daily in warm water for 20 minutes and use sterile gauze to dry off. Apply Vit E and Aloe Vera creams/lotions 3 times daily. Keep the exposed skin covered with second skin or similar product.

Post mastitis and huge blisters, how do I heal this patch of dead skin on my nipple? Breastfeeding.

Needs evaluation: "blisters" and "dead skin" on a breast after mastitis sounds like a problem. A primary care doctor can evaluate it to see if further treatment is needed, or perhaps the previously inflamed skin is now drying up and will eventually peel away, leaving new skin. The breast can be examined now and then again later, to be sure the breast returns to normal, and there is not another medical problem. ...Read more
