Hello there

my suspicion is that the sunscreen irritated the delicate skin and caused the blister. Cool compresses to the area should be of most benefit along with a small amount of hydrocortisone creme (1% creme) . Of the three docs you mentioned, the preferred specialist in my opinion is the dermatologist. It is quite possible that this can resolve by the time your event comes around. I wish you well, Dr. Stevens
