Re: Fracture Blister Treatment
Hey there, sorry to hear about your accident. I know how crappy that situation can be. I am doing worlds better now, luckily. The blisters can be really freaky to discover, especially when you are not aware that blisters can form due to fractures. I would be a little more concerned about the one that you said popped. I only had one blister that formed and I made sure that it remained intact to prevent any chance of infection. From what I have read, the risk of infection is what you really need to worry about with fracture blisters. I would talk with your doctor about the best way to treat the popped blister, especially if you are wearing a boot over it. Also, I know that blisters can differ in severity. I only had one large, clear filled blister but from what I understand the blisters can be blood filled and indicate a more severe injury. How do your blisters look? Also, make sure you keep your foot really elevated for like 23 hours a day. Swelling can really put pressure on the blisters and make it much worse. It took about 16 days for my blister to fully heal, but the case my be different for your blister that has popped.
