I have this burn on my arm and It doesn’t hurt but it was a blister and it popped, as I was cleaning it up the skin came off and it has been covered for a day or two but hasn’t healed yet. Any advice?

More info required to assess. How did you do it, what part of the body, what size, any sign of infection? Or try the Pharmacist, Practice Nurse or GP for some advice.

You should just look at it and use common sense.

Not hurting is a good sign.
I would clean it up using some antiseptic like Dettol and then maybe put some antiseptic cream on it like Germolene.
Hopefully it will scab over. Normally you dont need a plaster unless its in danger of being interfered with.
If it starts to feel wrong or really starts to hurt, then let the chemist look at it or go and see the nurse at the GP. It sounds like a small burn. Read the above link.
