In brief: Depends
Depending on the type of the blister, yes and no.
Generally, there are two types of blisters, blood-filled or clear fluid filled. Blood filled usually means deeper skin layer damage. If the open blister was a blood-filled blister, i'd advise against it until the deeper skin layer heals. If it was the latter, then it shouldn't be a problem but may sting or irritate your skin.

In brief: Not at all
Micatinn is a topical antifungal medication.
Open blisters are not fungal, so an antifungal wouldn't be helpful at all. In addition, the alcohol base of the spray may cause unnecessary stinging. Use a topical antibiotic and a bandaid to cover a blister until it dries out and the skin toughens up.
