Scar: In order for a hypopigmented scar to repigment, melanocytes will need to migrate from the adjacent normal epidermis or the hair follicles.

It would be best to visit a Dermatologist and see if tacrolimus or pimecrolimus and/or Narrow band uvb would be appropriate. ...Read more

This : This is a tough question to answer without more information. How small is "small"? Where is the blister located? Are you wearing a prosthesis? How long has it been since you first saw the blister? How were you able to determine that you have good circulation? Without this information, i would suggest that if the blister is not infected and is not causing pain and doesn't limit your ability to wear a prosthesis, local wound care would be reasonable with the expectation that it may never heal, or heal very slowly. If you are able to provide more information, myself and other physicians may be able to advise you more appropriately. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
