The most correct treatment for a blood callus is to allow it to heal within a few weeks: the conditions are sterile in the blister, the fluid is gradually reabsorbed, mitosis occurs with the formation of new skin cells, and the blister membrane gradually dries up and disappears over time. But while the blood callus heals in this way, it should be protected - with the help of a special hydrocolloid plaster Compid (Compeed), Reliance, Alpe, Corn Milplast, Septona, etc.
To reduce pain, it is recommended to apply ice to the callus or take pain relievers such as ibuprofen or other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs with pain relief.
If, as is often the case, the blister spontaneously bursts, its shell is by no means removed, since healing under it occurs faster and without complications.
Opinions about the puncture of a bloody blister - when it interferes with walking - are diametrically opposed. Some doctors consider attempts to open it as a risky procedure due to the threat of infection, therefore, they advise to consult a doctor.
If, nevertheless, it is decided to get rid of the pain of a pressing blister by puncturing it, then this should be done with a sterile needle from a syringe - in a horizontal plane in the lower part of the blister (without touching the damaged skin) - with preliminary treatment of its surface with medical alcohol or vodka and subsequent treatment with the same alcohol or alcohol tincture of propolis. From above, the corn is closed with a sterile bandage, or better with a bactericidal or colloidal plaster.
At the slightest signs of inflammation, the blood callus is lubricated with such ointments as tetracycline, Levomekol (Levosin), Baneocin, Oflokain or other antibiotic ointment , as well as ointment or cream with silver sulfathiazole (Sulfargin, Argosulfan, etc.).
