Thanks for writing to us.
It is best not to burst the blister. Along with burnol, you need to apply a local antiseptic cream on the area too like neosporin. You need to take a tetanus shot and start taking a systemic antibiotic to avoid any infection after consulting your physician. Keep the area open and do daily aseptic dressing with paraffin gauge.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
