The ugly blister

On Sunday night I was draining the water off potatoes I wanted to make into mashed potatoes, I have one of those pots with the lid with little holes in it so you can use it to drain things, when somehow boiling water spilled out over the index finger on my left hand. I hurt, but not all that much. I finished making dinner without any more problems. My finger was very red in the area I had scalded. Monday morning I noticed tiny little blisters in the scalded area. By Monday afternoon the tiny blisters had merged into one big blister. It has continued to get bigger a little every day. Now it takes up the whole scaled area. It's really quite an impressive blister, even if I have to say so myself. I don't think I can describe it adequately so here are a couple of pictures.

Ugly isn't it?

I've been advised to let it break on it's own, and then use a burn bandage on it until it's healed. I got 2nd Skin Moist Burn Pads.

Hennifer: The blister is still there, giving my a better chance of healing without infection. It's still big and ugly though.

Anonymous: I never even thought of naming my blister. Got any suggestions?
