Pop a blister?
I have a blister on the ball of my foot the size of a half dollar. I know that if I want to drain it I should sterize, stick the side yada yada I know that. But will it heal (or heal faster) if I just leave it alone.

cutie pie!
dont pop it that could get it infected. You need to let it dry up naturally. leave it in the air. it will take a while but thats the best way to deal with it.

Most likely your poor fitting shoes, or new shoes caused this blister. If your not going to see a doctor, then go to a pharmacy and ask a pharmacist about an adhesive dressing for popped blisters such as "mole skin", when wearing shoes and walking I would wear some kind of dressing to not cause further damage from friction, at home I would wash it with warm water and soap, keep it clean and dry and apply, triple anibiotic ointment on it (bacitracin).

Leave it alone, once you open it up then your opening the door for bacteria or infections to come in, if it is to the point that you cant stand it anymore and you do have to open it, then keep the area clean and apply an antibotic cream and a bandaid. This will stop an infection from entering while covering the opened blister until it has had time to heal.

Pop it. it'll heal the sooner it dries up

You should NEVER pop a blister! Let it pop on its own and yes it will heal.

There is a big risk that if you drain it, that it will get infected and turn into something a lot worse. (Trust me, I had one that I popped and i got infected and swelled from the size of a fine pen dot to a dime-size and I couldn't walk or keep the leg standing without blood pouring out from it.) I think there are treatments for those that are available in the pharmacy and I think that you should go to your doctor to see what ointment might be right for you.

drain it and put antibacitracin ointment on it and at night let is breathe, in a few days it will be good as new

For me blisters are like tootsie roll pops...The world may never know...I never have the will power to leave it alone...I pop every one I get...

But I'm sure it will go away...eventually

I've always been told to leave it alone. It certainly does heal by itself - it's your body's way of protecting new skin. What happens when you get a blister is that you effectively killed the outer layer of skin. While the new skin is getting ready underneath, there is fluid between the two layers to protect the new skin from friction. When the new skin is ready, the old one peels right off. If you pop a blister, you are putting that new, raw skin at risk. It will hurt to walk on it, since it is very sensitive.
