Q:
How to Treat Frostbite Blisters?

A:
The best answer  is to simply leave them alone. Blisters should usually be left intact to prevent infection and damage to the other layers of skin and tissue underneath them. Blisters will normally heal on their own over time as new skin grows underneath the blister and takes its place.

Blister treatment  can often be performed at home in a convenient and affordable way. Here are some tips:

  • Bandages and Gauze. To protect a blister and allow it to heal, cover it up with a bandage or wrap it in gauze.Hydrocolloid dressings are an over-the-counter solution to promote blister healing and manage blister pain.
  • Fresh Air.When you are home, remove the bandage or gauze to allow fresh air to reach your blister. This will reduce the amount of moisture and promote faster healing.
  • Aloe Vera. Much of the pain of a blister comes from the swelling, and aloe vera is known to reduce inflammation.
