N2 + Wart + 4 Days = ?

Well, this is little question I have about something the nurse who treated me did not address very well.

I've had a few warts on one of my feet for about four years, and, feeling it was time to end the long, lasting relationship, went to get them frozen. I've gone twice before, but to my dismay the warts were not fazed.

This nurse, who works on campus here at CSM, boasted about her experience in the field of wart removal, and warned me that after the treatment I would get blood blisters aplenty.

That I did.

However, one has proven to be especially virulent. On the inside side of my foot, a blood blister has manifested itself under the wart there. Over a period of four days, it has grown to be the diameter of a nickel, and about a centimeter high. Given that the wart itself is about a fifth the diameter and a tenth the height, this seems a bit ludicrous.

I understand that the blister is an essential part of the treatment, but is it ok to drain the damn thing?

Or should I let nature take its course?

    Hello,

    You should see a dermatologist, warts are treated by specialists using acid, electrocauterization or laser.

    Keep in mind that warts are caused by viruses, are contagious and most of the time they may comeback.

    Don't fuck with it and let a dermatologist see it if it causes discomfort.

    Nitrogen has worked as well for me as any other treatment in the past, there is a wide difference between the nurses that apply it though. To be honest the most effective times have been when I've got a big blood blister like you describe and just let it be. Eventually the whole thing scabbed up hard, came off and took the wart with it. I'd be wary of draining it in case you reinfect your self at another site.
    My experience may be different though as I've only had a few small ones on my fingers.

    I've had the same blood blister thing, that was MUCH bigger than the wart that was treated.

    It takes a long time, but let it just dry up and fall off.

    Its been almost a year and mine are still gone

    Yea, it looks really weird when it happens, almost like your wart has decided to rot on you. But when it falls off, it looks goooood.
