Yes: Some babies are even born with a "sucking blister" from sucking on their own hands in utero. It is common and normal for breastfed babies to get this same type of sucking blister from feeding. It is not dangerous and you don't need any medicine or creams to treat it.

The loose skin : Should be trimmed away, the blister cleaned, then dressed with an antibiotic ointment and then covered with a band aid. It will take a few days, but the soreness will gradually decrease as the skin under the blister dries out and toughens up.
