Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
she should see a doctor to get the area examined.
a surgeon can pop the blister and help it drain
she will need the fluid inside cultured to see what infection was growing inside
she most likely will need to go on a course of antibiotics as well to help fight infection
the culture of the fluid can check for infections which sometimes can be resistant to certain antibiotics.
how old is your daughter
is she willing to see a doctor for evaluation and treatment?
boy, I would hate for this infection to get worse if she doesn't take antibiotics and it spreads to her bone and heal and then spreads to her blood system.
