    I was always told on my first aid course to never put creams on it could make it loads worse
    If you have had it in cool water you should have had it in there between 10-20 minutes, dry it carefully and lightly cover it with clingfilm or a sandwich bag, this will stop infection getting to it, whatever you do don't burst the blister.
    take some painkillers and if the pain seems to be getting worse call NHS Direct and they will tell you if you need treatment or not 0845 46 47
