    actually, not a good idea to pop a blister…. see, your integumentary system (skin) is your first line of defense versus infection… if you create an entry point by inserting a needle, even if the needle itself is sterile, it’s possible to give bacteria and other possible sources of infection a way into the body, where they can really cause harm…

    i tell all my patients that if the skin isn’t broken, in any case, then don’t break it… leave it be, keep it clean and apply antibacterial cream or ointment, and cover it… the body will reabsorb the excess fluid after a while and it will be like it never happened…
