A blood blister is a type of blister that forms when sub-dermal tissues and blood vessels are damaged without piercing the skin. It consists of a pool of lymph, blood and other bodily fluids trapped beneath the skin. If punctured, it suppurates a dark red fluid. Sometimes the fluids are cut off from the rest of the body and dry up, leaving behind dead cell material inside the blister with a texture like putty. Some blood blisters can be extremely painful due to bruising where the blister occurred.

There are several methods of healing blood blisters.

For immediate care leave the blister alone and apply a ice to the area. The cold reduces the inflammatory response. It is also advised to try not to let the blood blister come into contact with food, but depending on where exactly the blister is depends if this is possible or not.

In some cases, it is advisable to visit a doctor to ensure that the blood blister is not a symptom of a more dangerous condition.

Refrain from irritating the affected area. If necessary, apply some sort of mouth ulcer medicine as this will help to protect the area from food especially sugar and salt which can cause pain if are able to get to the affect area.

If the blister breaks, quickly rinse out your mouth with cold clean water and avoid eating or drinking anything, other than water for a short period of time to allow your body to seal up the wound

Small blood blisters, such as obtained when something pinches the tongue, may hurt for a minute but soon subside, leaving only a painless blister. Such blisters should be left to heal naturally; there is a possibility of infection if they are punctured, and unless it is painful, the risk is likely not worth it.

You just need to give it time to go away. If you use Melaluca oil it will go away faster than if you put nothing on it, but it will take time. I don't think you want to use a needle in your mouth and get blood spilling out. If you leave it , it will take  5-7 days to go away.

I get these occasionally from eating hard things like corn chips or from tomato products. They've all just gone away on their own within 1 or 2 days. However, I got rid of the last one by munching on a bowl of grape nuts! I don't know if that will work for everyone, but it's worth a try.
