We've all had them at least once in our lives! Blood blisters usually result after a long run, getting your fingers pinched by a heavy object, or a result of frost bite and small explosions. Remember the last time you didn't wear socks, ran for miles, and oops; there it is! Most blisters will heal by themselves if you leave them alone but if you want to speed up the healing process, read on. You see blood blisters happen when blood vessels under your skin are damaged but blood is suspended inside.Here's how to heal a blood blister.
- You can try a cold compress or soak them in Epsom salts, both of which work to reduce the swelling of your blister.
- Pop it! Use a thin cotton thread to stitch through the blister. The dead skin will then stick to the flesh.
- With the blisters on your feet you can try elevating them. Prop them up on a few pillows.
- There are also special blister pads available. The skin of the blister must all be moved and then you put on the pad.
- If the blister happens on the tongue, an ointment called Abreva is to be applied on the affected area. Denavir or Zevirax also works but you need your doctor to approve these for you. Vitamin C chewables work their magic best on these blisters. The more pain you feel, the faster the blister will heal.
- A hand blister is much easier to treat. Just make sure you clean it with soap and water. Rubbing methylated spirits on your blister is also good but extremely painful. But remember not to use hand creams and moisturizers, as they will soften the skin and make it worse. Do not rub with pumice stones or loofahs either. Remember that your blister was caused by severe rubbing on your hand and rubbing it with something rough will not work.
- Some say urine works, so if you do not feel this is strange or disgusting, it's a less painful rubbing method alternative.
Blood blisters can also be caused by poison ivy. It can affect an already open blister or cause one to happen. The blisters are your body's natural allergic reaction. But never break the blisters because this can lead to blood poisoning. It's best to see your doctor at this time. If you cover it, change the sterile bandage frequently to avoid the risk of infection but remember that air is actually needed to heal the wound.
Pharmaceutical packaging usually uses blister or clamshell packs. Plastic clamshells are the same. Plastic thermoforming is used to make plastic trays to package these products. Retail package is using a clear or metal-foil seal to hold products such as capsules and tables against a sheet of card. Big companies usually do contract packaging for those who want a variety of packaging done in one place. They can do shrink wrapping, stretch wrapping, bagging parts and components, cello wrapping, RFID packing, heat sealing, thermoforming, and labeling, among others.
