contact dermatitis with blisters - to moisturize?

Hello!

I've had band aids applied for about 3 days and seem to have developed contact dermatitis.

I have several smaller water blisters and one quite large one.

I have coconut oil at home, should I use it to moisturize given the large water blister or will it just feed the blister with further fluid?

Thank you!

I forgot to mention, some internet sources mention cold compresses as a means of relief. I suppose it's fine to just soak the affected area in cold water, it's not actually important to apply pressure, is that right?
