How can burn blisters on the finger tips be treated?

...I burned my fingertips on a 600+ degree sheet pan. They are now blistered and ashy. The pail is severe. I cannot take them out of cold water without extreme pain. Is there anything else I can/should do? I have 2% lidocaine gel. Should I use it?

You should apply Cortisone cream on the blisters. Also, consult a doctor and get them drained.

I have a really bad burn on my hand between my thumb and finger. I have1 large blister and several small blisters. The hand is red and swollen. This just happened this afternoon. I did run it under cool water when it happened but it still blistered. I put vitamin E oil on it. Is that good or not? What should I do at this point.

Hi, I burned my hand and fingers yesterday and I have blisters at the base of each finger and on my hand. My fingers are quite swollen as well as my knuckles. I have a little bit of pins and needles sensation. I m wondering how I should treat this . Thank you.

I have a blister on the side of my pointer finger just past the first knuckle from working with landscape tools. I cut it open to relieve pressure like I have done a thousand times and have kept it clean. I sqeezed it to much due to the irritation and soreness I attributed to a slight infection. now my finger is slightly swollen and is red/pink around the blister and over the last day the pink color has ran up my arm all the way to my armpit and I have slight pain or tightness up to my elbow. I have clidamyacin antibiotic from a infected tooth and took some hoping to slow the infection if that s what it is. what is happening and what actions should I take
