(HealthDay News) -- A blister may be painful and uncomfortable, though it's best to avoid popping it. But it's important to keep the area clean, especially if the wound pops on its own.
The Mayo Clinic offers these care suggestions:
- Washing your hands with soap and water before touching the blister.
- Using soap and water to carefully wash the blister.
- Using iodine on the wound.
- Applying Vaseline, then covering the area with a gauze bandage that won't stick to the skin. Repeat this daily until the wound heals.
