What is the remedy for blood blisters on the foot caused due to freezing a wart ?

Should I pop my blood blister on my foor? It is been almost a week since I have had this blood blister. I got it from freezing a wart on my foot . I can not walk very well, and since my family is visiting Chicago for the spring break, I am wondering if I should pop my blood blister. The last time I popped my blood blister, the blister reformed causing a much wider blister. But now my blister has dried up on the sides. How many days will it take until I can finally walk again... without any pain? If I do pop it, will it take longer before it can heal?

welcome to hcm.

please do not attempt to pop the blister by urself forcibly, since there is a danger of recurrence and reappearance by a wider picture as ur history tells.

Kindly use silicon "in-sole" available from Scholl/bata inside ur shoes.

Kindly review with a surgeon for a better clinical recommendation based on the exact site & nature of the blister.

thank You:-)
