NO: I am not sure how sweat stuck under burnt skin but is will not matter. Leave it alone and not puncture the blister. It may dry from below or rupture on its own. As long as not red it should do ok. You will want to clean this daily and prevention of any dirt in the wound.

Infection possible: You may need to seek immediate attention. If there’s swelling, pus, streaking red lines, you are likely to have soft tissue infection or cellulitis. Elevate your leg, keep wounds clean, and watch for those signs and for weeping, or fevers. Depending on the amount of surface area of the burns and the depth, this could be very serious. If fever or streaking red lines up your leg, go to emergency! ...Read more

Blisters on heels ripped off, skin raw. Been using antibiotic ointment but "new" skin is yellow & has pus. Red around edges. Infected? Urgent care?

Blisters on heels ripped off, skin raw. Been using antibiotic ointment but "new" skin is yellow & has pus. Red around edges. Infected? Urgent care?

As long as it's open: & not anymore than an uncovered blister, it will heal. Keep it clean, wash (scrub) it 3-4 times a day. That will get the crud off the top, may not feel good but unroofing it is good. Then if available to you cover with Silvadine cream, if not an antibiotic ointment. You want to keep it clean & not let it crust over. Keeping it covered with a band aid will keep it moist. ...Read more

I got a little sunburned about 5 days ago and now my skin is blistering, help?

Moisturizer: Use a lot of moisturizer. Aveeno (oatmeal) is a good brand to use. The concern is that blisters should have appeared earlier and usually with only a little sun burn you do not get blisters. There is a possibility that you have some other condition causing blisters. In that case you will need to see a dermatologist or a family physician to get proper diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

What do you suggest to relieve the pain of a blister (the skin came off) and heal it quickly?

What do you suggest to relieve the pain of a blister (the skin came off) and heal it quickly?

Simple Treatment: The real question is what not to do that slows down healing. Avoid using alcohol, peroxide, hibiclens, betadine, and bleach solutions. Inflammation (red, hot, swollen, tender) is important to healing so anti-inflammatories (motrin, advil) are bad. Cover the area with a clean dressing changed every other day and protected from trauma. Antibiotics do not help healing unless it is truly infected. ...Read more

Herpes zoster?: If the blisters are all over the head and only in sun-exposed areas (e.g. not in the hair), then maybe related to sun exposure. But if localized to one side or the other, i.e. no blisters across the midline, then herpes zoster (shingles) is a good bet.

What happen when u peel off the blister skin?

What happen when u peel off the blister skin?

It is more prone to: Blistered skin is best left alone. If you peel the top, the skin underneath is raw and is exposed to germs, so it can get infected more easily. At this stage you need to cover the raw area with a non-sticky band-aid and change the cover once or twice daily till it heals...may take 3-5 days. Watch for any yellow discharge....that is a sign of infection. Let us know in case you develop infection. ...Read more
