How to drain a blister

To ease the pain of a blister, drain the fluid without touching the overlying skin. This is the way:

Wash your hands and the blister with soap and warm water.

Clean the blister with an iodine swab.

Sterilize a clean, pointed needle with rubbing alcohol.

Use the sterile needle to puncture the blister. Puncture the blister at several points near the edge. Let the liquid drain, but do not touch the skin covering the blister.

Apply an ointment, such as petroleum jelly, to the blister and protect it with a non-stick gauze bandage. If a rash appears, stop using the ointment.

Follow-up care. Check the area every day to see if you have any infections. After several days, cut away the dead skin with scissors and tweezers sterilized with rubbing alcohol. Apply more ointment and a new bandage.

It is always better to have the help of an expert.
