Blood Blister

Hi,
Im 19 years old and last night I found a blood blister on my labia.
I popped it and blood started pouring out.
It was sticking out about a centimeter and its quite painful.
I think it formed after going to the gym because it wasnt there beforehand.
What should I do to make it go away?

Hello,
Blood blister is a type of blister that forms when subdermal tissues and blood vessels are damaged without piercing the skin. Give rest to the part, apply cold compresses, soak the blister in Epsom salt and keep the hand bandaged so as to avoid its rupture. If the blister breaks, quickly rinse the area and apply an antiseptic such as neosporin. It is not recommended to break a blister because it may often lead to infection.

If the symptoms worsen or persist then please consult a dermatologist.
I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.
