Hi, Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum.
First clean it with cold water to reduce the wound's temperature. Either immerse it in cold water or apply cold water compresses or place it under a running tap water for 5 minutes. Do not apply ice packs. If a blister forms do not burst it, let it burst on itself. Apply antibiotic ointment like Neosporin along with T-Bact antiseptic ointment and cover the wound with sterile gauze. Take him to a Physician for further evaluation of the wound.
