Healing Question

I have read that when an outbreak appears, the healing process begins once the blisters break.  So, my question is, are these blisters like any other blister where the healing starts to begin underneath even though the blister hasn't broken?  I'm just trying to figure out if I should try to leave the blisters unbroken as long as possible so the skin underneath can begin to heal or if it is best that they break early if that's when the healing process begins.

It's recommended that you not purposefully break open any herpes lesions. Just let them heal on their own.
