Red face Blister problem

Hi,

Um it may seem to be the common "what do I do with my blister" question but anyways, here's my question.

I had flats that were a bit too small and during the day when my feet started to inflate a bit (due to sitting down in class) it rubbed on the "knuckle" of my big toe (where you bend your feet when you walk). It resulted in a blister at first until when I almost got home, it ripped wide open with the skin gone.

It was pretty much raw flesh. I first rinsed it clean and put antibiotic ointment and then I found out it didn't seem to work as well. My dad helped me put hydrogen peroxide (which burned like hell) as an antiseptic and put his other antibiotic ointment and bandaged it and this was at night. The next morning I found out that my so called raw flesh turned into a very big bump, opaque and yellowish. Now I think it's still infected but now it's inside and not outside.

To the touch it feels like a SOLID blister (like semi fluid semi solid) thats why it's opaque. It started to irritate me alot so I thought okay maybe I should drain the fluid by puncturing it with a clean needle washed with alcohol. I punctured it, VERY little fluid came out. However, around this bump, there is a white-ish skin rim around it that is formed from the rest of the skin that was intact and not ripped(like an outline of the bump), it often drains fluid out. So I'm wondering where the pus is coming from and how I should deal with this!!!

I'm about to go see the doctor this weekend coming up... but in the meantime I have to wait (summer school).

Thanks for reading!
