Should I drain a blister?

Though you should avoid popping blisters in general, large and painful blisters may need to be drained to relieve discomfort or pain. This can be done by sterilizing a small needle with rubbing alcohol and gently piercing one edge of the blister to drain fluid. When fluid has been drained, wash the area with soap and water. Afterward, apply petroleum jelly and cover the blister.
