thanks. off to shoppers drug mart me goes.grounded4life said: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.
1. Clean the skin around the blister.deep said: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.
NEVER pop a blistergrounded4life said:That's the worst thing to do for a blister. That's supposed to help heal the blister. Bad bad bad. Never pop a blister unless it pops on it's own
