How can a blister on the palm caused by skin burn be treated?

Hello good evening. My 1 year old daughter recently got a burn on her hand by touching a motor cycle exhaust pipe. This happened about 3 days ago. A big blister has formed on the palm of her hand. I have not taken her to the hospital because I am in a forgein country. We called family and they informed me of how to care for her burn. I also had a lot of advice from family here. Today the blister had popped open while she was playing. She does not seem to be in any pain, but I am very worried. Any advice would help.

Hi,

It's actually a burn, which leads to blister. Now blister popped open. So underlying skin may be sensitive. You can apply over the counter available soframycin cream on the skin.

Also, try to avoid wetting of that area. If it gets infection and pus immediately consult a nearby physician.

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

Take care

Regards,

I have a small patch on my palm that is like small blisters or pimples under the skin. Based on where it s located, I think it s due to me wiping up two different cleaners with same paper towel, that got on my hand. I didn t even think about it until the next day when I noticed the bumps. they are isolated to one area and have not spread or gotten bigger. They are under the skin but are red and hurt. How should I be treating this?
