Thanks for writing to us.
If these blisters are large, the best option would be to get them punctured and aspirated. This would relieve the pressure and pain sensation. keep the area clean by washing it with Luke warm water and applying topical antibacterial cream. Hopefully in few days, the lesions would heal.
Hope that helped.
Take care
