Yes I know you are supposed to leave the blister there for as long as possible but I need to get rid of burn blisters quickly?

I managed to burn my lip (half my lower lip) last night and it came up with a lovely big blister. I have an interview on Wednesday morning and I really don't want to go in with a big day lip.

What on earth were you doing to burn your lip there?

Perhaps you should exercise more caution when trying new techniques.

Tasting a bit of pasta to see if it was cooked, and there was a little bit of boiling water left inside the pasta.

Aloe vera? From the actual plant. It healed a burn quickly for me a while ago.

I got a bum burn blister once if that counts? Not sure if the mark is still there... At least I have a legitimate reason to <scratches arse>

If you don't happen to have an Aloe Vera plant handy, look for a spray on aftersun/sun burn treatment - I've used Savlon aftersun foam spray (it makes a foam that you don't touch) and it has cleared up minor burns almost overnight.

Is that what they are calling crack pipes nowadays...

A needle and thread, pierce the blister with the needle and pull the thread through the blister, soaking the puss up (dont forget to soak the thread in dettol first to stop infection)

Sandpaper?

If you want an Aloe Vera plant I can give you one.

we also used tincture of benzine in the forces..... fantastic cure.

ETA: you drain the blister and shoot it up with "tinc benz".............. hurts like hell but works wink

Sandpaper and chisel was suggested by the other half.
