Simple Treatment: The real question is what not to do that slows down healing. Avoid using alcohol, peroxide, hibiclens, betadine, and bleach solutions. Inflammation (red, hot, swollen, tender) is important to healing so anti-inflammatories (motrin, advil) are bad. Cover the area with a clean dressing changed every other day and protected from trauma. Antibiotics do not help healing unless it is truly infected. ...Read more

But if localized to one side or the other, i.e. no blisters across the midline, then herpes zoster (shingles) is a good bet. He should see a doctor ASAP: helpful treatment is available but must be started early for maximum effect. ...Read more
I burned myself on a coal. A thin layer of skin came off and my skin is white beneath. I don't see a blister. What do I do?
Result of a blister I had, 1 week now and I'm worried exactly what it is because I flushed the fluid inside but I didn't do anything with my skin.
It is more prone to: Blistered skin is best left alone. If you peel the top, the skin underneath is raw and is exposed to germs, so it can get infected more easily. At this stage you need to cover the raw area with a non-sticky band-aid and change the cover once or twice daily till it heals...may take 3-5 days. Watch for any yellow discharge....that is a sign of infection. Let us know in case you develop infection. ...Read more
