These oral medications have been shown to decrease the duration of the outbreak, especially when started during the "prodrome" (symptom onset before the actual condition becomes fully evident).

May have knocked blood blister on man and little bleeding cuts on hands what's the chances I will get hep c or hiv?
Not likely: It is unlikely to get hepatitis c or HIV from brief exposure to blood. Of course it is impossible to get hep c or HIV from a man that does not have the virus in the first place. Hopefully you know this man and can ask him if he has hepatitis or not. Hepatitis b is much more contagious, and there is a vaccine for this, so see your doctor and make sure you are immunized! ...Read more

I have a rather large blood blister on my stomach area and it started bleeding so I popped it. How can I now prevent infection?
Blood blister: Generally, blisters should not be "popped" as the area beneath them is sterile. Preventive measure for one you've broken: wash gently with warm soap & water; pat dry; apply antibiotic ointment & non-stick bandage. Watch for signs of infection: pain, increasing redness, pus. If those occur, see doc for treatment. Btw, may not have been blood blister: as we age get benign red lumps called hemangioma. ...Read more

I have pimples that form on my vagina lips and get really big and look like blood blisters. They pop and bleed. What is this?
Hemangioma? Veins?: Have you discussed this with your gynecologist or internist. Is this following sex, pregnancy, or inactivity. There are several questions that need to be asked. This sounds suggestive of a vascular lesion associated with varicose veins but could be other infections or tumors or reaction. Meet with your gynecologist. ...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. ...Read more
Leave or release: If the pressure is unbearable, clean it and a sterile needle with some alcohol and puncture it from the side to release the blood. Do not remove the roof as this will act as a natural dressing until the skin underneath heals and pushes this dead skin off. I recommend aquaphor and a bandage for 24 hrs after puncturing. And do not touch it if you are diabetic and it is on your foot - get checked. ...Read more

SImple means: You need to identify why the blister developed and eliminate that problem. Then, the keys are to cover and protect the injured area with dressing changes every other day to allow healing. Remember that inflammation (red, hot, swollen and tender) are important parts of healing and do not necessarily mean infection. If the wound is healing, it cannot be infected. If it gets worse, see a doctor. ...Read more
