Had a large blister on the bottom of my foot and popped it. It now has a red ring around it, the skin is really hard. It is itchy. Is it infected?

In brief: Possible

It's possibly infected with fungus or yeast.
It's probably not a bacterial infection from your description. Apply topical lortisome (antifungal cream with hydrocortisone) and bandaid for one week. If skin feels worse or appears like its spreading, see a doctor. Hope that helps.
