She had a bit of an accident with the roast potatoes whilst trying to get them on the tray of hot fat.  :scared:
A combination of the mother "in law" putting too much fat in and the potato sliding off the fork prematurely!
I got this and r lass managed some small splashes under her chin.
Ouch!
Could have been a lot worse I'm just glad we keep the kids out of the kitchen.

Not good whack a pin that's been sterilised with a flame in that blister on the foot and drain it will be much better.

Jesus, that's Emmas chin and your foot right?

Christ, that's nasty. Oil's worse than water as it sticks, and gets way hotter. At least you've got a good excuse to numb the pain with booze.  :hey: Burns are horrible.

Well I said that mate but according to NHS website amongst others it says in upper case letters DO NOT stick a pin in it or you risk infection.
Apparently the fluid in the blister is meant to be the body's way of healing it so I thought it best to let nature do its thing.

It's a sure bet that it's gonna pop in bed tonight or when I least expect it though.

I must be an animal as when ever I've had a big blisters when either welding or using a cutting torch I've always popped them and then ripped the skin off to get the air to it but then being in the motor trade I suppose I have a good immune system from cuts and bugs ect.

The thing the NHS is instructing is good advice generally. It's because they've got to assume most people are dumb and they'll mess it up. If you go to A&E they'd drain it, but they know they're doing it right. They've got to assume you'll mess it up, and so advise to leave it as is, as the fluid protects it, incubates it while new skin forms, but the pressure can be painful and if it's drained it'll become a scab, which does the same job. Reality is that you've got work at some point and you can't put a shoe on that. You can with a scab.

You're obviously not daft, but it's up to you what you do. We're no medics.  :glad:

Well I must admit I'm in 2 minds as I'm sure it is getting bigger as we speak. This is since the last photo which was taken shortly before the post...

The trouble is we have an electric hob and I don't fancy clambering around in the gas oven to sterilise the pin.

I bet it was relief I would personally uncover it as soon as you can to get the air to it or it will end up soggy under there and take even longer to heal.

I agree with Mike the NHS has to cover there backside if they say pierce it with a sharp object someone is bound to use a nail or something.

Yes @Marty it certainly was, as it was getting tighter and more sore the more it grew!
Thanks for the advice. I took off the dressing this morning to get some air to it whilst I'm around the house...just wanted to keep it covered in bed so it wasn't getting rubbed about  :O

Glad it's less painful do you have sudocrem in the house if so put a covering of that over it that will give it a protective layer and help with healing :)

Doesn't sudocreme have a numbing action too? Has that helped?
