burn blisters

To pop or not to pop?

I gave myself a nasty burn on my finger yesterday. I've been dosing it regularly with Boiron Calendula gel, which is like magic, so the red painful part has shrunk down to a tiny rim around my blister.

However, this enormous blister on the inside of my finger, while providing me with several teachable moments with my middle-schoolers today about our bodies' great capacities to protect and heal themselves, is getting in my way.

I normally wouldn't pop, as I'm in favor of letting my body take care of itself, but it is DRIVING ME NUTS. How bad to pop it, and then just care for the wound carefully?
