In brief: No, please don't

See your doctor and have your feet evaluated as soon as possible, any open sore can cause a serious infection and should be monitored.

In brief: Podiatrist.

Best to see your podiatrist for that--there might be a wound underneath they need to treat, and if there is any infection involved, they would want a sample of the blister fluid.

In brief: Don't do it!!!

Bacteria love to thrive in blood.
This can be treated in a doctor's office, but don't do it yourself at home. You could just develop much larger problems, primarily infection.

In brief: Not on Diabetic

The smallest problem can lead to a much larger problem. Have a podiatrist take care of it.
