Blood blister on heel a few days ago. Ignored. Now there's a v.Painful blister with what looks white beneath the skin. Not burst. Infected? Treatment?

Bad blood draw yesterday (venipuncture/8vials).Immediately:red/blue, v.swollen&painful.Now:flat,hard lump,bruise.Do ruptured veins heal?Just a leak?

I recommend ice in the first 2 days, several times a day (15 min each time) and switch to topical heat on day 3-4 and take ibuprofen as tolerated. ...Read more
