Default blister remedies?

Does anyone know a good remedy for blisters? I have one on my finger. All I know is to cover it so I'll be less inclined to pick at it. (It hasn't burst yet, and hopefully I can keep it that way. )

ETA: I should have posted this in the hand and foot forum. Oops!

Blisters suck. I know you're not supposed to, but I always feel so much better after I prick a blister with a sterilized needle to relieve the pressure, slap some Neosporin on it, and then a Bandaid. Really, it's not the best thing to do, but to me it feels better.

Actually covering a blister is all I can think of as well.

For the longest time, I would also sterilize a needle and prick it to get the fluid out. It relieved the pressure, but then the blister area was very sore for what seemed like a long time.

I stopped doing the above years ago and now follow the cover with a bandaid approach. I put some triple antibiotic on as soon as the blister breaks on its own. They have healed faster in the longrun for me this way and they are less painful after they break.

I always pierce them to relieve the pressure. I tried leaving one ONCE and it nearly drove me nuts. I pierce it, drain it, A&D Ointment it overnight, then the next day I take the cover off and Bandage it up with ointment for the duration. That under-skin toughens pretty quickly for me that way.

I'm probably nuts, but that's how *I* handle blisters.

ETA: I keep forgetting how magnificent my avatar is, til I post here. I have to get busy and POST MORE, so I can SEE it more!
