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. ...Read more

Bruise: Sounds most like a bruise and sometimes they can pop up without being aware of the injury. You can give it a week or 2 to resolve. I would give it up to a month to resolve. If it doesn't, you could see a doctor, but very unlikely to be melanoma. ...Read more

Does your dog bite?: It still could be a bite of some sort. You are seeing a localized inflammatory reaction to a foreign protein possibly being introduced to your toe. There is dilation of the blood vessels and possible sub-dermal bleeding. Warm compresses may speed the resolution of the condition.
