And it still looks the same as it did and it is purple around the edge and it's white in the middle and the stuff in the middle is yellowish-white and I was wondering if it was infected I'm 13 years old. I didn't see a doctor yet since my parents think I'm okay and it's not infected but I begged them to go because I know when somethings wrong with me. And I'm pretty sure I have an infection?? Someone please help me with my questions someone who knows there shit.

Hi, Anon.

Thank you for contacting us with your concern.

It's best not to pop a blister. Don't remove the skin over a broken blister. The new skin underneath needs this protective cover. Apply an antibiotic ointment or cream. Look for signs of infection to develop, including pus drainage, red or warm skin surrounding the blister or red streaks leading away from the blister. Burns can take a while to fully to heal. However, if you are concerned, I advise seeing your doctor.
