Here are the answers given before and here. If it were me, I’d go with Shilolo’s answer. In the future, get the Bandaid blister covers

They are great at preventing. I don’t go anywhere without them and have even passed them out. Especially great when you have new shoes. Stop and apply them at the first sign of rubbing or pain. The trick is to get them on correctly. Follow the instructions to the letter with clean and dry skin and then hold your hand over them for at least a minute to seal them to the skin. I’ve had them last 3 days this way, even with bathing.

Seriously. Use the search bar before you ask. A simple seach for the word ”blister” turns up plenty of results.

You don’t get rid of it Mrs_Dr you just treat it. Try a bandaid to protect it and wait it out. If it is full of fluid, you might stick it with a sterile pin or needle to relieve the pressure. Very sorry to hear you have damaged one of your delicate pinkys.
