Is it good to pop fever blisters?

When it comes to a blister it is best to leave it alone because the skin over the fluid is a natural and very effective barrier to infection.

Should you pop a blister or leave it alone? If you can pop a blister how do you go about doing it safely?

It is best to let a blister stay intact. The skin underneath is raw and prone to infection. What you need to do to help your blisters heal is soak them in warm epsom salt and them cover them with moleskin to help them heal. But if you MUST pop it,wash the area and dry,then sanitize a needle in alcohol and slide it just through the skin over the fluid.If all is ok then wash the area again,then conver with antibiotic ointment and a bandage.Lastly you need to keep it clean.
