A blister is a small pocket of fluid in the upper skin layers and is a common response to injury or friction. Blisters rarely need medical attention unless they are severe, recurrent, caused by burns or are due to an underlying infection.
Once you have a blister, resist the urge to pop it. Popping a blister can introduce infection, and often the blister comes right back the same day. Instead, keep the blister covered with a bandage until it dries up.
But we know blisters are usually too annoying to stick to a strict watch-and-wait approach to healing.
So here is what you need to do in order to speed up healing of your popped blister:
If your blister pops, wash it with soap and water. Afterwords, cover it with a bandage. Remove the bandage and treat the raw spot with a mixture of one part tea-tree oil and three parts vegetable oil four times a day.
The tea-tree oil in this remedy will help kill bacteria and prevent an infection.
Apply a mixture of vitamin E and calendula ointment to help your skin heal faster.
Vitamin E comes in gel capsules. Slice open a capsule, mix equal amounts of the vitamin and calendula oil, and smear the mixture on your blister. Reapply as needed for up to a week.
