I'm a diabetic and have a blister on the side of my foot, should I pop it?

no see a foot doctor


diabetics have poor circulation, particularly in their feet. If you pop that blister it will not heal correctly and you may not notice it due to the lack of sensation in your feet. It can lead to a really bad infection and the worse case scenario, gangrene and amputation of the foot.

Just leave it alone and have a dr. treat it and look at it. Check it everyday. Let the blister drain by itself.

Don't pop it because it can leave your skin open to infections. Instead, put Bacitracin on it and cover it with a band-aid, if it doesn't clear within 3 days see you Primary Care Physician.

NOOOO!!! call ur doctor, never mess with ur feet, u are much more likely to gey an infection than someone who isnt diebtic. never mess with ur feet. let a pediotrist to it. inspect them daily and rub lotion on them to keep good circulation, other than that leave the rest to the foot doc.

no talk to your DR.

If you hve diabetes you should also see a podiatrist on a regular basis.

An ingrown toenail can be a pain in the @@@, to a diabetic i can be a nightmare.

Here's some more info...

ABSOLUTELY NOT! As you probably know, diabetes reduces wound-healing. Leave the blister alone; it will probably resorb without a problem. Avoid shoes that will rub on the blister and cause it to open.

dont....my dad has diabetes too...ive herd that it takes forever to heal with diabeties

NO NO NO NO NO NO! Oh my gosh! Do NOT pop it! Foot health is one of the most important things for a diabetic. If you pop it & it gets infected you may lose your foot! You need to see a podiatrist immediatly!

There is no reason to pop a blister. Put a bandaid on it and it will pop or absorb when it is good and ready. Watch for signs of ulceration. Keep your sugars in check.

Do you regularly see a podiatrist? When I was first diagnosed my gp set me up with a number of specialist and a podiatrist was one of them. It turns out I was having some minor problems that I didn't even realize and those were easily cleared up. They did stress the importance of checking my feet every day, getting regular checkups and to not hesitate to call if I had any problems.

I started walking daily as my exercise and before too long was up to 30 miles per week (currently trying for 35 miles per week) and that's when I started getting blisters. I refused to not walk even though I had the blisters so I called/went to my podiatrist. He cleaned them up (drained them) and gave me this advice:

1. Check your feet daily (I was already doing this
2. If you have a blister, take a sterlized needle (a testing needle works great, btw), pop it and make sure to drain it completely.
3. Put some topical antibiotic (Neosporin) on it.
4. Bandage it. (Large Bandaids work great for flexibilty and staying power)
5. Reduce the cause of the blisters. For me it was moleskin at first (check your local drug store) as a cushion between my skin and sneaker. After my feet toughened up a bit, cushioned socks were all that were necessary.

Having said all of that, I will end with how I started. If you aren't under the care of a podiatrist, you should be.
