Hi...., Apply moisturizer or aloe vera lotion or gel,which may provide relief... Consider a tetanus shot. Make sure that your tetanus booster is up to date. ... Don't break small blisters .....If blisters break, gently clean the area with mild soap and water, apply an antibiotic ointment, and cover it with a nonstick gauze bandage.... If needed, take an over-the-counter pain reliever....
