you need to see a doctor about this
you need prescription medical ointments like silvadine on the area or manuka honey to help cover the blister to keep it from getting infected.
you need prescription lidocaine ointment 5% to help numb the area to decrease pain until it heals.
you will need to eat a soft diet or liquid diet or eat smoothies through a straw possibly until the blister heals
you might need a course of antibiotics to help prevent infection
do you have a doctor or ER close to you where you can see a doctor?
