If your symptoms aren't that debilitating - may want to try non-op - PT, injections, etc. ...Read more

This: This is a tough question to answer without more information. How small is "small"? Where is the blister located? Are you wearing a prosthesis? How long has it been since you first saw the blister? How were you able to determine that you have good circulation?

If you are able to provide more information, myself and other physicians may be able to advise you more appropriately. ...Read more
