I have what I think is a metacarpalphalangil blister on my finger, between my nail and first joint. The blister becomes very painful as pressure increases. I have resorted to slicing the blister open, squeezing out the clear, thick fluid, then applying an antibiotic ointment to the site. After repeating this procedure for several days/weeks, it finally heals up and doesn't return - until next time! Please advise. What can I do to keep this blister from returning? Is this fluid leaking from the joint? I have been diagnosed with OA and I am 63 yrs. old.
