Should I Pop a Blister?

The short answer to this question is NO. New skin will form underneath the affected area and the fluid is simply absorbed. Do not puncture a blister unless it is large, painful, or likely to be further irritated. The fluid-filled blister keeps the underlying skin clean, which prevents infection and promotes healing.

If the blister is likely to be further irritated i.e if it is large and on the arch of your foot or the back of your heel, then use a sterile needle to release the fluid but not the overlying skin, this  reduces the pressure and pain. Then cover with a sterile fabric Band-Aid. Read More.
