Can Blood Blisters Cause Complications?

If you don’t treat your blood blister you’ll most likely have the nail fall off after a very painful and awkward period of time (awkward because it hurts too much to wear shoes and you spend your time in flip-flops or barefoot). If you are suffering from discomfort don’t let the procedure put you off (I appreciate that it requires drilling a hole in your body), it will be worth a few more minutes are discomfort to feel that relief and quicker healing soon after.

Other potential complications include:

  • Infection of the nail
  • Fever
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Headaches
  • Muscle and joint aches

If you have any of these symptoms or a general feeling of illness, you should see a doctor immediately.
