Your are a Diabetic.
Foot care is a integral part of Diabetic management as a whole.
In long standing diabetes due to peripheral neuropathy the pain and temperature sensation of the foot is lost. It is a natural defence mechanism. So any trivial to the foot of the diabetics should be attained to.
The blister that you have developed may be due to you walking in the sun on a bare foot or on an improper foot wear. Both should be avoided in the future.
Don't deroof the blister. Give a good antibiotic cover.
Consult a podiatrist.
