is it a blister or a wart? if its a blister your shoe could be agravating it so that it won't go away... try to wear something less fitting on your foot. But you can also get those scholls blister things to put on your foot as well.

Sterilize a needle by holding it under a flame for a few seconds, then wipe down the needle with rubbing alcohol. Insert the needle into the blister, not at the top, but instead at the side, near where the blister emerges as skin cells in this area are least ruptured. Allow the fluid to drain out. Don't tear off the now unswollen skin. Wipe down area with rubbing alcohol.

The pressure of the fluid underneath the skin is what causes the pain. However if you tear off the top of the blister, it will then hurt because of the now open wound.

The pressure of the fluid underneath the skin is what causes the pain. However if you tear off the top of the blister, it will then hurt because of the now open wound.
1. Clean the skin around the blister.

2. Place a doughnut-shaped piece of moleskin over the blister. This will keep pressure off it.

3. Try to avoid popping the blister unless it's in an especially awkward place, such as the bottom of your foot. The blister provides a sterile environment for the skin underneath. Breaking it makes the area more susceptible to infection.

4. If you need to pop the blister, use sterile implements, puncture it in a few places at its base and drain the fluid.

5. If you need to puncture it or if it breaks on its own, clean the area with soap and water or Betadine.

6. Avoid peeling any skin off the blister; this can lead to an infection and delay healing.

7. Cover the exposed blister with a thin layer of antibiotic ointment and dry sterile gauze.

8. Change the gauze regularly and watch for signs of infection, such as pus or redness.


Warnings:
If the infection from a blister doesn't clear up quickly, your doctor may want to prescribe antibiotics.

The fluid does not cause the pain. That's what helps heal the blister. The pain is caused my the raw skin that's exposed. It's a friction burn.

I take a fresh scalpel blade and slice along the side of it.
Then I bandaid it up until it heals.

My advice is to seek advice through an internet message board.

Does your foot look like this? If you have had it for a couple of weeks....I would suggest for you to stop going to parties that involve electronic music and dancing.



Who has a straw?
