Medical question

Since half of you guys are doctors and nurses.

I have a blister under my big toenail, do I pop it or leave it?
Will I lose the nail?

This is not medical advise.
You will probably lose the nail whether you drain it or not. If the pressure is causing pain and you decide to drain it, be sure to cover it to protect from infection.

Well the solution so far...

I accidentally dropped my shoe on the toe, and all this blood mixed with blister juice came out. I'm trying to avoid pressure on it. All good so far.

Probably doesn't look that bad, but it was interesting at 5:30 this morning.

I have to say that you guys get grossed out pretty easy. Might post some pics of my friends diabetic boils that he has, untreated.

You can't accidentally gouge a foot off a body or cause someone to lose the use of their foot, though.
