I have blisters on my feet & they're red because I accidentally took off the dead skin. And now it's hurting & red. Will it's still heal & how long?

Blister Care: Here is a post from my blog on blister care. It will heal, but you basically removed up to 1/2 of your skin protection. Soak daily in warm water for 20 minutes and use sterile gauze to dry off. Apply Vit E and Aloe Vera creams/lotions 3 times daily. Keep the exposed skin covered with second skin or similar product.
