What are the Treatments for Blisters and should I Pop them?
Most Blisters caused by small burns or force rubbing of the skin. do not need to be looked at by a doctor. new skin will grow under the old skin or affected spot on the body and the fluid will be absorbed and the blister will despair.
Never pop a blister unless it’s large, uncomfortable, painful or likely to be irritated. because it can lead to some type of infection. the fluid keeps the affected area clean and moist and helps the new skin to grow.
If you need to pop it.
if you need to pop it or it bugs you when you look at it here’s how.
1# first, sterilize a needle, you can do this by pulling the needle under flames until its red-hot or rinse it in alcohol, that way u don’t infect are irritate the skin or affected area.
2# wash your hands and the area has clean as possible, then try to make a small hole to drain out the fluid.
3# don’t remove the skin from the affected area, the new skin will need to be protected and it will hurt so just leave it alone.
