That is the question.

It's only pea sized but I'm very tempted. Has anyone ever done it?

YABU

Pop it.

Film it.

And you should have added a <KLAXON> to your Op.

You need to make sure it's ready to pop before trying or you will die in pain! Lots of hot as you can handle flannels on it then it should pop
happily!

I used a warm flannel for a bit then gave a squeeze. No luck. Then it just popped on its own. Such a relief when it did. Have a hot bath/warm flannels of u can stand it. Good luck!

Nice hot bath, sterile pin if you can then see a head on a squeeze. The relief is amazing. None of mine have got infected
