Diabetic, dime-sized blood blister on toe for two weeks. Dark red. Keeping it bandaged. How long will it take to go away? No pain, no itching.

Diabetic, dime-sized blood blister on toe for two weeks. Dark red. Keeping it bandaged. How long will it take to go away? No pain, no itching.

It's Gone already.: After two weeks, I think it's time to forget about the bandage. The cap will come off and the dried blood will be swept away. If there is any residual tenderness, and I doubt if there will be, use a bandaid for a few days. ...Read more

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. Watch it & make sure there are no signs of infection. I hope his diabetes is well controlled ...Read more

Hey-Good Pickup: You are a STAR as one of my former mentors, Dr. Henry Kaminski would always say. You've just identified one of the most important things diabetics can do (aside from watching their sugars & taking their meds) to prevent complications. Diabetic foot care requires special education, footwear, & above all, VIGILANCE and DILIGENCE. Talk to his doc or nurse & get the facts. Good luck you STAR you! ...Read more

Protect it: An unpopped blister represents a closed sterile environment. Yes on occasion one can become infected then it is time to open it, however the risk of infection in a dressed open wound is still higher than that of an intact blister. The blister will gradually resolve with time, be sure to continue to check your feet and watch it carefully if infected or not healing see doctor. ...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
