Leave it alone.: I generally don't recommend popping blisters of any kind unless they are painful, because of the risk of infection. If it's not bothering you, cover it with a bandaid. If it itches, apply Hydrocortisone cream 2-3 times a day. If it gets painful or tender, or develops a red ring around it, see your doctor or a dermatologist.

Bug bite that causes large blister, treatment?

Local wound care: Local wound care usually involves washing with a gentle soap and water twice daily, applying antibiotic ointment and monitoring for signs of infection. Increased redness, ulceration, swelling and pain, especially when combined with the appearance of pus indicates an infection which should be evaluated by a primary care physician.
