Ok
This should really be looked at by a doc
In the mean time
do not pop any blisters

put a cold wet cloth on for a few minutes daily
use an antibiotic cream and cover with a non-stick dressing

If this is more than 3 inches in diameter see a doc today

Homeopathic uva ursa is an excellent home cream from health food stores and works well.

watch for any signs of infection

use tylenol for pain

change dressing daily

good luck
