What does a blood blister look like

A blood blister happens when you nip the skin. In this case the patient tripped on a kerbstone. It looks like the skin got caught between the shoe and the bone. The swelling was full of liquid, some blood and some lymph, and was fairly uncomfortable. This is the blister two days after the injury.

If the blister bursts or you decide to pop it then there is a high risk of infection. You must keep the area clean and put a sterile gel blister dressing on the area such as the one below.

I am registered with the Health Professions Council, the regulatory body for health professionals and I have been treating feet for over 20 years.

For further information about my chiropody practice see my practice website where you will find lots of tips and information.

From a professional point of view I find feet, foot conditions and shoes fascinating. I spent the first part of my life waiting for the Internet to be invented and now it's here I want to share my enthusiasm about feet with you all.
