Bad blister from a pair of shoes, wound reopened due to daily activities, now have swelling, itching around the wound. Infection?

I recently got a very bad blister from a pair of ordinary shoes (not exercise). The wound has been reopened due to stress on it caused by my everyday life. Today i experienced red skin, swelling , and itching SURROUNDING the wound, not really on the wound itself. If this is an infection, how soon must I seek medical attention?
