Will blister causes thickening of skin?

I did the salt and ice challenge not knowing what it would do. i dont know how long i left it on but now my skin is red and it is a little thicker than it should be. Is this a blister and if it is how can i make a fast recovery without having to tell my parents??

Hi

You seem to have developed a superficial skin burn due to the test that you did.
Now you should keep the affected area clean and dry .
Apply a topical antibiotic cream like neosporin over the affected areas twice a day .
Do not apply any other cream or oil over it .
Wash it with plain water twice a day before applying the medicine .
The lesion should heal in few days.

Hope it helps
