    So basically i was using the glue gun and for some reason this particular one was really hot (hotter than normal) which was great because it melted the glue really well. However as i was glueing something i accidently pressed the nozzle and the molten glue into my thumb. It hurt a lot and usually i'm not one to complain about pain but i did hurt. Anyways it was throbbing in history and so i put some damp tissue on it. I then looked at it a few hours later and this massive yellow blister has grown.

    Basically what can i do about it, is there any cream i can use or should i pop it or something? it is sore and i want to make it disappear lol

    its always best to run under cool water when it first happens. im not a doctor but i think people are generally advised not to pop them, you dont want to make it worse or get it infected. i burnt my arm really badly on monday on a lamp, it swelled up and went yellow, but it went down prtty fast and now ive just got a red mark which is a bit sore if you poke at it. i say leave it unless you get advice from someone more qualified that disagrees.

    Once I burned my hand on the fire. I had a huge blister. Which my granddad sat on and popped. My had got burnt plastic on his hand when putting a bag on the fire also. Fire and hot glue is very dangerous. You should take more care in future. It couldn't bare you seriously hurting yourself.
