U may try soaking : Your foot in warm water with epsom salt and peroxide, and take otc nsaids. However, u have to consider seeing a dr because u may need to be treated for a bacterial and/or viral infection. Take care!

Pop and cover: Working for the chicago marathon years ago, at the end of the race we popped all blisters and covered with triple antibiotic cream and bandaids. Anything other than clear fluid, we'd set up a followup appointment. Generally, at your age, this is nothing to be too concerned about, but definitely get it checked out if you want. Best of luck.
