Popped a blister on my toe & peeled off skin. It hurts! What can I put on it to prevent infection? Any home remedies? ?

I have tea tree oil, but am not sure if that will work or if it will burn. 

I also have apple cider vinegar.

Any help appeeciated. I upped my running from 3 to 8 miles a day.

    It may burn but tea tree oil is good. So is neosporin with the pain relief. It has a numbing solution to help with the pain. Then cover with bandaid while running and when home and in a clean environment, let it get some air.

    dont put any of that on there--you will kill off cells trying to heal the new skin.  You can get bandages just for blisters at any pharmacy, or any non stick dressing (or ointment and gauze). Blisters rarely infect unless you wear dirty shoes like sneakers for example.
