Hi everyone

Welcome to our channel

Today we will discuss how to get rid of a blood blisters.

Blood blisters are just like normal blisters, with a minor blood clot.

They can result from any high-pressure injury that causes the skin to pinch.

This breaks the blood vessels at the site, allowing blood and lymph fluids to pool between

the affected tissue and the skin.

While bruises also result from blood vessel damage, they�re caused by direct skin trauma.

Blood blisters mostly occur on people�s hands and feet.

The back of the heels, toes and the balls of the feet are the most commonly affected

areas on the feet.

On the hands, the palms, fingers, and knuckles are most often affected.

At times, blood blisters can be painful.

Apart from gardening, activities, like running, jogging or doing hard labor, can result in

blood blisters on your feet or hands.

You can get rid of a blood blister in the same way you deal with regular blisters.

There�s rarely a need to see a doctor.

Just use some simple home remedies, and you can take care of it yourself.

Home Remedy # 1:

Witch Hazel

Witch hazel is one of the best natural astringents that will dry out the blister and provide

speedy relief from pain, swelling and inflammation.

Soak a sterile cotton ball with witch hazel and place it over the blood blister.

Let it sit for a few minutes.

Remove the cotton ball and let the witch hazel dry on your skin.

Repeat the process several times daily for 1 to 2 weeks.

Home Remedy # 2:

Cold Compress

This method works best when applied immediately after the injury.

A cold compress can help constrict the blood vessels at the site of the blister.

Put some ice cubes on a small cotton towel and make a bundle.

Place the makeshift ice pack on the blood blister.

Apply it in multiple 5-minute sessions for a total of 20 to 30 minutes.

Repeat the process several times throughout the day to get quick relief from the pain

of blood blisters.

Home Remedy # 3:

Epsom Salt

Epsom salt has many health benefits, and it can also be used to reduce the pain and swelling

from blood blisters.

Put 2 tablespoons of Epsom salt into a bowl.

Pour in about 2 tablespoons of warm water.

Stir well to dissolve the Epsom salt.

Soak a sterile cotton ball in the solution.

Place the soaked cotton ball over the affected area, covering the blister entirely.

Keep it in place for about 20 minutes.

Repeat the process 3 or 4 times regularly.

Home Remedy # 4:

Pop and Drain the Blister

If you can�t stand that painful blister for another second, the best way to get immediate

relief is to pop and drain your blood blister.

Remove the syringe needle from its case.

You can also use any clean needle, scalpel or lancing device.

Soak a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol.

Wipe the needle thoroughly with the rubbing alcohol to sterilize it.

Clean the outside of the blood blister and the area around it with soap and water.

Puncture the blood blister with the sterilized needle and let the fluid drain out.

If the blister is too big, you may need to make a few punctures to drain the fluid completely.

Clean the wound and apply a waterproof, adhesive bandage like Band-Aid.

Don�t remove the skin covering the blister, as it will protect the site from infection

and promote healing.

Change the bandage daily until the wound heals.

With proper care, it should heal within 1 week.

You can get rid of a blood blister in the same way you deal with regular blisters.

There�s rarely a need to see a doctor.

Just use some simple home remedies, and you can take care

of it yourself.
