Salon pas on arms followed by blister that are oozing clear liquid. Remedy?

I placed Salon Pas on my arm due to a pain (possibly caused by carrying a heavy purse for several days) and have had a reaction. Started with blisters where the patch was placed and they have spread down my arm. Itching and pin pricks when I place Gold Bond Ultimate Healing to relieve symptons. Blisters ooze clear liquid.

Dermatologist 's  Response
You must have developed contact dermatitis by the analgesic present in solanpas. In simple words, your skin has developed sinsitivity to solanpas. Never use it in future, because every time it is going to produce similar lesions. Better you avoid using other topical analgesic too.
If the Gold Bond cream is causing itching and pin pricks, stop using it.
If the blisters are large, get them punctured by sterile needle. Don`t get them de-roofed.
Oral antihistaminics and topical steroid + antibiotic cream can be used.
Avoid washing with harsh chemical like dettol etc.
Visit a dermatologist as soon as possible.
