If you get fellatio and 2 minutes later a blister pops out on the side of your penis is it herpes or is it normal and the blister is healing?
Answer You can definitely get herpes from oral sex. Who knows if it is or not only a doctor. But for men the Herpes blister will be itchy then sore and it will have clear fluid, and be small if one or a small cluster.No, Herpes does not appear that fast.Odds are that your partner just gave you an a…ggressive hum job. She (or he) may have accidentally pinched your penis in between a couple of teeth and you just didn't notice it. Congratulations, by the way, once you get married, this oral sex stuff becomes a thing of the past. (MORE)
No. You will expose a raw layer of skin earlier than it is ready and you run the risk of introducing infection. And it hurts
Blisters form because your body is trying to prevent any further damage to skin and to heal the damage that has already been done from rubbing etc. This is why the disgusting pus is produced to help heal the skin, so it's a bad idea to pop them.
Yes, they can. I suggest you don't do it, though. It'll leave a mark. Forever.
Friction and Burning are the main culprits. The body forms a blister to protect the underlying skin from more damage.
No. It's best to leave it alone. The body forms that blister as sort of a natural band-aid, to provide a cushion, and a sterile field to promote healing. Eventually, the blister will pop on its own. Unless you really need to pop it then pop it with a steroile needle carefully and then let it all dr…ain out and put on a bandage and hange the bandages regulary, make sure you check for any signs of redness around the blister and any signs of an infection coming through. Hope this helps, Good Luck! (MORE)
it takes 3 years
Clean it gently with soap and water. Trim away dead skin. If it's less than the size of a quarter (2cm or 2/3in), you can rinse it with hydrogen peroxide or betadine, bandage, and do a wound check every day or two until it heals.. If it's over 1" (3cm) in diameter, you may want to see a doc and see… if you can get something like Silvadene (Silver Sulfadiazine topical) ointment prescribed for it, which you'd apply either daily or twice a day usually.. Larger than 2" diameter or so needs to be seen by a professional. (MORE)
blisters should not be popped, once you pop blisters you are allowing the possibility of germs infecting the softer tissue underneath.
it typically depends on the conditons i would be cause it helps relive pain right after that i usually put bag-balm on it going from the surrounding area in to pervent further infection. REMEMER not to let dirt and moisture near the area(s), because it thrives on those things.
1.] For most cases, I would suggest leaving the blister alone. Sometimes, though, it becomes quite painful due to the buildup of fluid or blood beneath the hardened skin. If it becomes severely bothersome to the point you just cannot live with it one more second, I would try releasing the blister's… fluid with a sterilized needle. You need to avoid further infection, however, so strict measures must be adhered to in order to get the fluid out. There are a few ways to sterilize your needle prior to poking it horizontally through the top of the skin, making a hole, through which you will push the fluid out. 2.] To sterilize the needle, there are a few methods you can try. I would use the rubbing alcohol and sterilize the needle by running it over the needle while holding the needle over a sink. Other options include holding a flame over the needle or dipping the end into boiling water. Any of these will suffice. Do wash your hands prior to and after touching the blister. The key is to stop infection from spreading. Draining it will definitely relieve the pain and pressure. 3.] Now is when you hold the needle horizontally across the blister and penetrate the thick skin until a hole opens for you to push out the fluid. You can try doing this a few times until you get the "goo" out. Remember to apply pressure as you push from one end of the blister slowly towards the end with the hole in it. 4.] Immediately cover with your antibiotic cream and bandage to ward off further infection. You don't want to be spreading bacteria and causing yourself further harm.

Do not pop a blister; besides potential infection, the puss may transfer the infection to another part of the body (such as the eyes).
yes you do and be very catious , because the blistering will eventually cause a infection, which will eventually cause a swollen cheek !
Put a sticking plaster (Band-Aid / Elastoplast) on it. Remove the plaster and wash it gently and dry it thoroughly every night. Put a clean plaster on it evrey morning until it is gone..
i would advise you not to pop your blister especialy if it is on your lip a risk of infection and fluid on your lip. if it is bugging you go to your GP and i am sure they will give you something if you would like to know more go on a health website or research thanks.
When a victim gets burned and blisters form, that is classed as a second degree burn. As a rule, blisters should NOT be popped / broken - the skin, (Integumentary System), is there to protect your body from infection. . If the blister does pop / break, the injury should be covered to minimise th…e chance of infection. . REMEMBER: Burn injuries don't bleed - burn victims die from infections! (MORE)
All the Serum (water) will flow out. You need to disinfect it, cover it and protect it. I would advise you NOT to pop a blister.
Yes, but proceed with caution to avoid infection. A good way to release the fluid is to use a sterile needle to poke the blister at one end, while gently applying pressure to the opposite end to force out any remaining fluid. DO NOT tear away the flap of skin over the blister, as it will leave raw s…kin exposed. Allowing the blister to break open on its own may not only be more painful, but may also lead to infection and take longer to heal. (MORE)
It hurts a bit like a shock, but it doesn't hurt like you are dying if you are a kid then put ice and soak. It helps and dont get dirt around it.
No, You Shouldn't! Popping them, while tempting, will only prolong the healing process. It can also cause worse scarring.
No, popping them makes them more painful, and also lets germs in which could lead to infection.
No. Eventually they pop on their own. It may be painful for a while, but it is better to let them pop on their own.
I usually cover it with a band aid to stop any possible infection. Half the time I just grow a pair and run on it.
I happen to have scratched a bump from that. It oozed puss & then began bleeding, needless to say after an hour wait at the ER for pain, I found out it was infected. I'm no doctor but I don't recommend you do so.
No you're not supposed to....you want to wait for it to heal on its own. It is annoying and you might REALLLYY want to..but DON'T. A callous will form which will go away eventually if you don't use it...and if you put lotion on it. Also if you pop the blister it may get infected...the water inside i…t is trying to heal...so leave it alone. (MORE)
\nit is better to cut it open and relieve the fluid from inside. The majority of pain comes from the pressure on the nerve endings. Once you cut the blister open, you need to pull all the loose skin off and then allow a fan to blow on the new skin. The new skin will be tender for a while but it will… relieve the pain on the blister. (MORE)
Don't pop blisters! Put a band-aid over it. It heals much quicker if it does not pop
absolutely NOT, you will have an infection, than your troubles will begin. If they bother you see a physician. It isn't recommended, but popping the blister is safe if you disinfect what you're using to pop it, and you sanitize the skin around it afterwards. Put a clean bandage on it. Only do this… if it's in an area that the blister would be irritated in. (MORE)
It may or may not hurt to pop a water blister. It is not a good idea to pop a blister since it can cause an infection. It is best to treat the area with an antibiotic ointment then cover it with a loose bandage and let it heal naturally.
Don't pop it! It has a chance that it could get infected. If that happens, go see a doctor. Don't touch the blister! Just leave it alone and rest a lot until it heals. Also, whatever caused the blister, do not do it again until healed.
Don't. The liquid in the blister is healing your blister. Leave it alone. It will go away, but if you pop it could get infected.
You should never pop a burn blister as it is the body's bandaid, but if that occurs use anti-bacterial oitment/cream and wrap it in bandage to prevent infection. When the wound is open, the fluids inside will leak out (which were protecting the newly forming skin beneath) and the burn beneath will… be prone to infection. Make sure you get it covered as soon as possible and avoid infection. (MORE)
no you should not pop sun poisoning blisters because they can hurt really bad and leave a scar
The fluid in the blister is contagious and the blisters can spread to other parts of the face.
savlon, some cream basically or'eughh' you could pop it, popping hurts and its disguisting but it goes away quicker, the safest way is to put cream on it and place a plaster on top, hope this helps :)
The medical term for blister is vesicle or bulla. It is used forboth blisters that have popped and those that have not.
You should not pop a blister because it can introduce bacteria into the sore and cause an infection in the wound or blood stream. If it pops on its own, use an antibacterial ointment and cover it up with a bandage until it is healed.
Even the thought of it hurts. I wouldn't do that. If you have a blister caused by sunburn, you have a serious burn. Get to your physician immediately.
If you burst all your chickenpox on purpose you will be left with marks. Popping the blisters increases the risk of secondary infection and scarring.
They tell you not to because an open wound can lead to infection or scarring of the skin. However, it is a myth that the liquid inside will spread the reaction. People think that because if you do not clean the area well you may still have the oil that started the reaction still on your skin and in …the process of popping it you may spread that oil around simply because you are contacting your skin. I personally pop the blisters and then dry them out with rubbing alcohol and make sure they don't get infected because I can not stand them. If you can avoid it however you probably should not.

It is better to leave it alone, but wash your hands, clean the blister area, pop it with a needle cleansed with alcohol. It will prevent any infection if you do it the right way.
Well in about 5days, and on its own it just popd! Iv ben spreying it with a disenfectant wound wash twice a day. Its good for dirt and debris its called simply saline from arm and hammer. I also shower with antibacterial soap, then I continued to keed it wrapped with non stik pads never bandage wrap…s that can stick to your skin or damage a scab. Little by little the fluid is draining, mow its all gone at day 8 and all u got to worry about is the ITCH! I let it breath for about n hour every time I clean it I heard it dries it out quicker. Well hope this has been useful (MORE)
Colloidal silver has only very basic antiseptic properties. Just use a regular antibiotic ointment like neosporin.
you do not what to put anything on it clean it with salen and a clean paper towel after it is clean you need to dry and rap all of the burn to prevent infection should be cept dry raped and clean.
Moleskin is best, although bandages work. There are also some newer gel products that may work well, too.
I've been doing it ever since I was a kid and I never had any problems, and I am healthy and 57 now, but somebody might tell you that popping the skin could introduce infection.
Blisters on the tongue usually indicate that the animal has beeneating toxic vegetation or that the animal has hoof and mouthdisease. Your veterinarian can provide a prognosis in either case.Hoof and mouth disease is contagious so, you need to act on thatout quickly so you can possibly save your her…d. (MORE)
If you get pus from a blister in your eye, you should probably seea doctor.
I had deep blisters on my feet and they popped so I pulled the skin away What can happen and what should I do?
If you had deep blisters on your feet and they popped as you pulledthe skin away, simply cut away the torn skin, and treat your feetwith some antiseptic, say Benzoin.
If you choose to do so, do it only in sterile conditions with asterilzed needle. Keep it covered and protected from sweat. If thearea stays painful and red, visit a doctor.
