Cold compresses: Sorry to hear. Apply cold compresses to the area. After about 20-30 minutes, check the blisters to see if they are getting worse. It sounds like a second degree burn. Get topical silvadene (silver sulfadiazine) and apply to blisters and dress it with sterile dressing. Deroofing blisters may need a doctor to examine first. Hope this helps.
