What can I do about blood blisters on my fingertips?


Answer by  jamieellison (1637)

Blood blisters on a fingertip can be painful and annoying. To relieve the pain, discomfort and strange glances you get, use a sterlized needle to puncture the blood blister and drain the fluid. Then apply an antibiotic cream to the area and bandage. It will likely hurt until healed, but it will not persist.

You don't need to do anything. Mother Nature will handle it. Just let your body heal and in a bit the skin will wear off and the whole thing will return to normal. (ps. Stop doing whatever caused the blood blister in the first place!)

A blood blister, like other blisters, should never be popped. You should try to keep the blister covered. It should go away in a few days. If blister opens on it's own, keep the area clean and dry as possible. There is an infectiuon risk if the blister gets dirt in it.

You can leave them alone and let them heal on their own. You could also attempt to donate blood because sometimes they need to prick your finger to test your blood.

Blood blisters are caused by trauma, so avoid trauma. They heal by themselves so let them, do not puncture them.

pop it and then drain it. Then cut off excess skin with nippers or little scissors so you don't get bacteria in it. wash with soap and water let air dry. just get rid of it. it is kind of difficult but it is worth it after you get rid of it.
