My thumb sucking 1 yo DD has an ENORMOUS blister on her thumb. She's really distressed about it. Would you pop it?

Any advice? She loves her thumb and is really upset hmm

dd did this around the same age , she gnawed at it and it got infected sad Don't pop it but maybe put a plaster over (very securely)

It popped on its own and now is super sore. It's not infected, I got it checked, but now she's so upset because she can't suck. It's really distressing.
