having them "popped" isnt so much an issue but how they are popped is. you can infect the area by opening it up, like if your fingernails or whatever you use contains even a small amount of germs, you could be potentially make matters far worse. the content of these blisters will not cause the reaction to spread (as the oil is not contained on the skin instead is absorbed with 2-3 hours of contact) but itching the area will.

i have done this before (wont again), and ended up with a "twice infected poision oak rash", it brought me to nearly sawing my leg off (ok im exaggerating but you get the idea).
