Lalaloopsyscaresme Sat 17-Dec-16 17:57:02

I can actually feel it straining, won't it be agony if I pop??

ineedamoreadultieradult Sat 17-Dec-16 17:58:04

Pop it!

Lalaloopsyscaresme Sat 17-Dec-16 17:59:08

I'd pop it. fgrin

Haven't you got long toes?
Tempting, but blister plaster and let it shrink.

Nobrain Sat 17-Dec-16 18:14:29

Pop with a very small pin and just squeeze (gently) to get the liquid out.

Lalaloopsyscaresme Sat 17-Dec-16 18:17:56

ohwhat my toes are like fingers 😂

It's so sore, won't it be worse if I pop????

Nick it with a sterile pin or similar, then soak up the seepage with tissue paper. Then leave to air. It will feel much better soon

Showgirl109 Sat 17-Dec-16 18:21:05

Pop

Use a sterile pin and gently drain the fluid onto some tissue.

UnoriginalNN Sat 17-Dec-16 18:32:10

Like you had to ask!

Poppedy pop it

Fairylea Sat 17-Dec-16 18:33:46

Pop it then bung some germolene or equivalent on it and some clean socks to stop any dirt or whatever getting into it. It will feel better when it's popped.

Lalaloopsyscaresme Sat 17-Dec-16 22:19:19

Thanks sporners, I popped it earlier and it has refilled 🤔
May need to repop tomorrow!

Oblomov16 Sat 17-Dec-16 22:24:59

It will help though, the fact you've popped it once.

mineofuselessinformation Sat 17-Dec-16 22:33:58

I'd thread a needle with some cotton and 'sew it through' the blister. The skin on top will die anyway, and it would keep draining. (Prepared to be shot down in flames, though!)

Oh I had one like that once - had to drain it 3 or 4 times before it finally turned into a delicious piece of hard skin for me to pick off grin

You can't just pop a big delicious blister like that-you need to make a tunnel under the good skin at the side, and as you're slowly withdrawing the needle, push against the side of the blister and all the juice will seep out the tunnel as the needle is pulled out. The tunnel of skin will seal over, and the blister heals itself. No exposed skin, no refilling, and no pain.
