Lifestyle and Home Remedies:
Depending on your level of pain, you might not feel like doing much, and you may feel weak and tired. If this is the case, be sure to listen to your body — get plenty of rest and avoid strenuous activities while you're recuperating.
Also, avoid stress, which can worsen pain. Relaxation techniques, including listening to music or doing tai chi, might help. To take your mind off the pain, try doing other activities, such as reading a book, watching a movie or working on a hobby.
Taking a cool bath or using cool, wet compresses on your blisters may help relieve the itch and pain.
Over-the counter medications also may help. Examples include:
• Pain relievers such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, others) or naproxen (Aleve)
• Anti-itch cream or calamine lotion
• Oral antihistamines, such as diphenhydramine (Benadryl, others)
