6 year child got sunburn. Blisters formed on shoulders, blisters started leaking. Is it an infection?

my son (6yrs old, 50 lbs) got a sunburn on Monday...Wednesday blisters formed on his shoulders. Now the blisters are leaking a yellow liquid that is forming a crust next to the leak...and even a bit down the sides of his shoulders. What do I do? Is it infected because it is yellow? How do I clean it when he is in pain and the bath is no longer helping?
