How to cure an infected blister naturally

Yes folks, it ain’t pretty, I had a blister on my foot, and it hurt so the GP cried ANTIBIOTICS! She wasn’t even sure that it was infected! After a few days I was in so much pain I actually considered taking them, but in a desperate attempt to find an alternative, I stumbled upon the idea of tea tree oil online. As I already had some at home, I thought I’d try it out before giving in to the evil antibiotics. Two drops twice a day, directly onto the blister (after cleaning it with soap and hot water followed by a salt foot bath once a day) and hurrah, my blister is no longer painful and although and can see it, I no longer feel it and can walk again!!!!

  2. Did you take the tea tree oil internally or did you put it directly on the blister? Also, how bad was your foot. I got a blister yesterday, it is about the size of a silver dollar & it has pus in it. My foot is also red, hot and swollen & very painful. I have a doctors appt. tomorrow, but I definitely would like to avoid antibiotics, if possible.

    • Hi Jill, sorry to reply late. I used the oil directly on the blister sfter washing the area with warm water and soap, twice a day. It was quite painful and red with lots of pus inside. Try the tea tree oil, it healed up pretty quickly.

    • Hi Jill, sorry for replying so late – I didn’t see this message before! So I guess you don’t have a blister anymore but here is my answer:

      I put the tea tree oil directly on the blister. When I saw the doctor she said it was infected and that antibiotics were the only solution. It was a bit smaller than your but the skin around it was red and it was really painful – with puss also.

      Did you go for the oil in the end?
