    Leave the blister intact! Do not lance or pierce the blister or scratch it off! Instead, leave it intact to rupture and open on its own! Apply medicated first aid spray frequently! Apply a spray such as Solarcaine or one of its competitors, to the sunburn blister at least twice a day! This will help treat the pain and itching that accompany such blisters, while also sanitizing the area! Apply antibacterial ointment to the blister once it begins to rupture and display the new skin beneath! This will help keep infection from developing! Wash the area daily and dry it with clean towels! Treat any pain with over-the-counter painkillers such as ibuprofen, naproxen sodium or acetaminophen! Avoid the urge to scratch the affected area! Doing so may cause an infection to develop!
