Blisters. Pop or don't pop?

This morning I had to walk a very long way including on the same street where a rapist and molesters are said to live . Well, I made it in one piece despite my feet trying to give from under me several times. My award for making such a grand journey? Some shiny new blisters! Okay so I'm confused because I am hearing that if you pop them they will be infect, but others are saying if you don't pop them they will be infected. What do you think and how do you pop a blister?

I too in this dilemma before. To pop it or not. I normally used a clean 'safety pin' or a clean 'needle' to pop it. However, it will be blister again but less 'water' in it. However, I remembered reading an article that said we should NOT pop it as the 'water' in the blister actually protect us from infection. Moreover if we do not pop it, it will heal even faster and less scar. I think it is true as I tried both ways before. I need to be patient because I have the tendency and it is tempting to pop it.
