dishing out his porridge and he swipped over and got in the drop of it from the spoon, yes he was in my arms , so hes now got 3 little blisters on the middle finger, and redness over his thumb and index finger
done cold water on it for a good while and some lavender oil

should i go to hospital with him now

No - you've done the right things - just leave it to heal

cold running water for 10 mins and an antiseptic

of course if they cover a big percentage of his body that's different but a couple of little ones on a finger will be fine

thanx twiglett
went to casualty, i'm back already!
so they dressed it with antiseptic and put a whopping great big bandage on his hand, and no outdoors for him! he ll go nuts inside. but the blisters are big on the middle finger, so
its precautionary i suppose for infection risk
