I Got A Thermal Burn With Blisters Why Does The Blister Gets Bigger And Bigger And Should I Pop It
I got a thermal burn with blisters. Why does the blister gets bigger and bigger and should I pop it?
Blister is damage: The blister is the full damage to the skin. Cold compresses will help. If the blister is tight or uncomfortable it can be opened but do not remove the skin. It will act as a biological dressing , like a skin graft and protect the underlying skin. When the skin is healed the skin will peel off just like a sunburn. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How do you look after a small burn blister On a finger from a heater I keep popping it it does hurt quite a bit thank you. ?
Does herpetic wit low hurt on hands without popping the blisters? Or does it burn only when you pop the blister? Need to know
It will hurt: It will hurt no matter what you do. I recommend BHT (butylated hydroxytoluene)--a food preservative anti-oxidant in a dose of 2,000 mg per day (split the dose throughout the day). Download a free e-book, "Wipe out Herpes with BHT." Also, apply DMSO topically, available from a health food store or animal supply (or on line). DMSO will dry up topical lesions rapidly, painlessly. ...Read more

Blister: A small, unbroken blister less than 1 in. (2.5 cm) across, even a blood blister, will usually heal on its own. Do not try to break the blister. Just leave it alone to avoid infection. Leave the blister uncovered unless something rubs against it. If you do cover it: put on a loose bandage. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
NO: Just let your body's own healing mechanisms play out. There's no benefit from bursting the blisters, and you could actually be doing yourself a disservice. Good luck. ...Read more
Leave blister alone: I recommend leaving blisters alone at home since they act as a biological dressing and protect the raw tissue underneath. At some point they will pop on their own and then you should apply an antibiotic ointment on the open area for several days. For large burns (larger than the palm of your hand) you should see a doctor since that may require more extensive care. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My big toe had blisters that have turned purple and the skin around it has hardened, and is burning and itching terribly. What is going on?
First off, you don't: Report any medical history. In the event you are diabetic you must see a foot doc. In the event you aren't, still a good idea but often can manage o your own. It is possible the purple is secondary to some blood. If the skin hardened you can file it down with an Emory board. Any open areas cover with a bandage and monitor for infection. ...Read more
