Blister

Posted by Bill M on 1/14/01 at 22:09 (036616)

Hi, I have a blister from playing basketball basketball in my socks in school, its pretty big and half of the skin is hanging off, right now just put antibiotic cream on it and put a bandaid on it. But i was wondering if i should leave the skin on or take it off for the area to heal completely
Thanks

Good question. Don't take the entire skin off. You will just expose the open area to friction which will cause pain and or infection.
