I burned two of my fingers the other night taking something out of the oven, I had ice on it for over an hour, and i have massivly huge blister on my index finger, it covers the whole pad, and a one half the size on my middle finger. I have seen conflicting info on internet whether to pop or not, but they seem to have their own pulse when i straighten my fingers out, and are quite irritating. This injury has severely impaired my guitar hero abilities, my daughter is beating me now!!!

I did have them under running water till my hands went numb, then it was time for bed so i took some ice with me, usually i would use some leaves off my aloe vera plant, but i was not at home!

make sure hands are clean, and lance ie drain them then cover in antiseptic and change dressing daily should be all good after a couple of days

I was watching hospital heroes the other day and a young mum bought in her kid with scabby fingers, she said he had had blisters but she popped them, doc said she shouldn't have, never pop them he said as the fluid underneath is protecting the damaged area.

Pop 'em before they mutate into foetus

We used to pop them in the Army after long TABS, sterile needle, then squeeze dry. Hoy a plaster on top, champion.

Pop them but only make a hole big enough to drain it, you don't want to rip the skin off it. Do that and you're asking for infection lol

Sterilise the needle first, i usually heat till red in a flame from a jet lighter to kill germs then wipe with a alcohol swap. Then gently pop enough to allow the fluid to escape before putting some type of antiseptic and covering.

Great antiseptic tip look for an iodine based one I use betadine expensive at around £9 a tube but lasts ages, I ripped around three layers of skin from my thumb on an area the size of a 5p when I caught it on the fire door glass, a week and a bit later there is nothing to see at all, it is worth paying so much for though Ive had infected cuts used this at night and next day gone and healing.

I've always been told never pop burn blisters. un-comfy shoe blisters can be popped after 24 hours!

Once you Pop You Can't Stop, or is that and advert off the TV.

I was shown a trick by my nan when I had heel blisters. She sterilised the needle and threaded it with cotton then dipped in antiseptic. She then put the needle into the blister and pulled the cotton through it which soaked up the water in the blister with only two tiny holes and they never got infected.
