Tincture of time: Hi. Assuming it's not infected (they usually are not), conservative management (watch and wait) will resolve the issue. Many patients aren't that patient, however, so I will in some cases remove the top of the blister, which speeds recovery, although that is not a standard recommendation in the foot field.

M57, what is difference between blister and ulcer in context to diabetic foot problems. Could a blister become big problem.
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.
