Keep clean...: The burn will heal with time. Given age of 75, I'm curious if any medical conditions exist that would impair healing? See local doc to determine if rx antibiotic cream is needed. Your husband should keep the area clean (gentle soap and water) and avoid tight clothes that will likely irritate the area and be painful to him. Avoid picking at the blisters as that increases chance for infection.
