FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Should you pop your toe blister?
It depends! I go into full detail on the pros and cons of popping blisters and the questions to ask yourself to help you make the right decision for your situation. I also show you how to pop your blister painlessly, in case you need a hand with that. Just remember that, once you have lanced your blister, it is now a torn blister, so treat it accordingly.

What about a blood blister on a toe?
Treating a blood blister is no different to treating a normal friction blister. Just be mindful that the fact there is blood, means there is more likelihood of infection. So antiseptic/antibiotic, dressings, dressing changes and monitoring for signs of infection become even more important. Learn more here.
