Small blister under foot, itching, growing in size, yellow liquid on popping. Cure?

I recently developed a small blister on the bottom of my foot after wearing flip flops to walk around on my college campus. ( I thought this was the reason why.) I rubbed it a little, but mostly just left it alone. It didn t really hurt. But, then last night it started to itch like crazy, and when I touched it I realized that it had grown to about the size of a large pea (it had just been a tiny bubble before that.) I popped it with a sterilized pin and a yellowish clear liquid came out, then I cleaned it with rubbing alcohol . Today it still itches and hurts a little.

Welcome to health care magic.
W the containing fluid 8 your foot sole should have not been punctured ideally.
The fluid could have got dried up and the affected surface could have healed.
Anyway now you have already punctured the blister so you do not have this option.
You should keep the wounded area dry all the times.
At best mop it dry with towels immediately if it happens to be wet say when you take bath.
Apply antibiotics cream twice a day and avoid putting pressure on these lesions.
If you did not have tetanus toxoid immunization, take a booster to prevent against tetanus.
I hope the advise will be helpful.
