Common causes of blisters include friction and burns. If the blister isn't too painful, do everything possible to keep it intact.

Don't use any dandelion stems that have been spread with pesticide. To apply, split the stems, put the sap on the blister, and cover it with a bandage. Do this once a day. Another treatment to rid blisters is to use the sap from the aloe Vera plant and put it directly on the blister, doing this once a day will speed up the healing.

Blister Beetles get their name from the fact that they contain a toxin called cantharidin that will make your skin break out in blisters if you come in contact with it. Usually you would need to touch a crushed beetle to break out, but some people can have an allergic reaction just from touching one of the beetles.

Putting ice on anything helps to constrict the capillaries surrounding the wound, thus reducing the amount of blood that can get to the wound, which in turn reduces the amount of swelling that occurs. If you can reduce the swelling of a wound before your body can react, the chances of avoiding a blister are increased greatly.

Puncture the blister in two separate places, and push lightly on the blister with the blunt side of the pin to push the fluid out.
