Popped large blister on heel, pus drainage, blister turned hard, sore, black. Treatment options?

A few days ago my boyfriend popped a large blister on his heal, he then used a blister plaster from a chemist as it was pussing and was very sore, (he had to put shoes on as he needed to go to work). When he tried to remove the plaster, it became stuck and he had to cut it off. His blister has now become hard, sore and has turned black. Should he see a consultant?

Good evening. Yeah i think he should see one.maybe it has got infected and it is better to sort it out before it gets worse. Bursting blister without proper hygiene can be harmful. Hope this was information was useful
