Best way to sterilize a needle? I have to pop this nipple blister and I don’t want to risk infection. All I have are sewing needles.

— Dont be popping no nipple blister. U mean your actually nipples?
— She has to pop it it’s a milk bleb and will only cause clogged ducts and eventually mastitis if it’s not popped
— @mimixtmn oh OK I understand now
— Aw hun it’s still there!!? Goodness 😮 be careful doing that, I’m sure your desperate at this point
— So desperate! My midwife was going to do it but they can’t get me in at any times I’m available so last resort. 😩
— @sectum_sempra, aww boo 😭 soon it will be over, I know it hurts😭
— Alcohol, then swab your blister with alcohol too
— Forming A I don’t have any alcohol. 😭
— Boil the needle or take a match and burn the top of it to kill any bad bacteria then wash it Make sure your boob is clean then pop it
— Next best would be peroxide (that's just my opinion though)
— Burn it then alcohol.
— Is the blister painful? When I had one I just pinched it open and milk came pouring out.
— It’s causing some milk buildup behind it so it’s making my breast a bit heavy and sore. The bleb isn’t painful itself. I thought it was originally but it’s my flanges not fitting right so my nipple was throbbing lol.
— Burn the needle tip And cleanse area you’re going to be piercing
