Hello, Popping scabies blisters doesn't kill the mites. You have to apply anti scabies lotion to kill them. Consult your doctor for the prescription of the lotion or cream. Thanks

Dr.  Ralf Von Seckendorff MD

If it is scabies then there is special cream (infectoscab or similar) available that will kill it . Best regards
