I recently had a blister on my middle finger caused by what I thought was eczema?

Hi, I recently had a blister on my middle finger caused by what I thought was eczema, the blister has now become painful and seems to be infected, I used a sterile pin to pop the blister a few days ago. What would you suggest doing? I am going away traveling in 2 weeks and need the best sort of plan of action? Does it look infected? Should I visit a GP?.
It has began ever so slightly throbbing and is very painful to touch, I can also semi see a beating of red around the effected area. Thanks

Age: 22
Male
Medications: Clenbuterol
General Information: Small rash appeared on rest of hand for a few days and feet

Hi.
It looks like a bacterial infection from tge appearance and explanation.
You should consult an Emergency room or a GP and get evaluated.
A sterile dressing can be done followed by a course of antibiotics and anti inflammatory painkillers for reducing pain and infection.

Hope this helps..

Regards.

Hello there!
It looks infected, on my opinion you’ll need antibiotics (topical and oral),try to clean the wound with microdacyn or dermacyn every 12 hours for at least 3 or 4 days and then apply the antibiotics. Are you allergic to something? Also can you please share a pic with the rash of the hands and feet?
Best wishes.
