How to Get Rid of a Blister

How to Get Rid of a Blister:

1) Remove all the affected skin around the area.

If there are no blisters, then remove any other infected or irritated areas. You may need to use antiseptic cream or ointment. Do not apply alcohol because it will make things worse and cause further infection.

2) Wash off the affected area with soap and water after washing off any excess dirt.

Apply petroleum jelly (such as Vaseline). Do not use petroleum jelly if the blister is on your lips.

3) Wait at least 24 hours before applying anything else.

Do not put anything into the area until it heals completely.

4) Keep away from sunlight and extreme heat for several days to weeks.

Avoid contact with other people’s hands or clothing during this time period too.

5) After healing, do not wear socks or shoes while wearing these types of boots.

These type of boots can easily become infected and cause blisters again. Wear cotton socks instead. You may also want to change your footwear regularly.

6) If you have a cold sore, you might need to keep away from people for a few days so the virus doesn’t spread around you.

If you follow these steps, you should be able to get rid of your blisters naturally, and prevent them in the future.
