    Good luck!

    Just FYI, undiluted hydrogen peroxide is terribly harsh on your skin. when we use hydrogen peroxide for wound care in the hospital it is very much diluted down and we only use it on some gaping wounds that are already infected. in fact over the last few years i've noticed a big decline in the use of Dakin's Solution (the diluted hydrogen peroxide) when it comes to wound care becuse of how hard it can be on the patients healthy skin.


    back on topic...i sterilize a needle and poke a small hole in the blister draining the fluid out but leaving the blistered part intact until its ready to come off itself.

    I was thinking the same thing. She sounds like a health care professional.

    I took a sports medicine class in college and they taught us to leave it alone to reduce the risk of infection. Cover it and wait it out!
