Brief Answer:
Use an antibiotic ointment

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to ask a doctor service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

I suggest you to put an OTC topical antibiotic e.g either Neosporin ointment or Mupirocin ointment on the raw skin, where the blister ruptured. Perhaps it was a skin and soft tissue infection.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you need any more assistance
