Hello,

Some advice that I can give to you is:

-Wash your hands with warm water and antibacterial soap.
-Using a cotton swab, disinfect a needle with rubbing alcohol.
-Clean the blister with antiseptic.
-Apply antibiotic ointment to the area.
-Cover the area loosely with a sterile bandage or gauze.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
