Burst or leave blister? VLM in 17 days
I have heard you have to prick it with a threaded needle. Pull the needle through but leave the thread under the skin (ie sticking out either side) to absorb the moisture.
People also recommend special blister plasters from the chemist.
Best to sterilise needle + thread first using surgical spirit - allow to evaporate or it will sting like crazy. The thread helps stop the blister re-healing and helps drain the fluid. Compeed plaster are generally recommended and you can get small ones designed for toes.
