I have been using metrocream on the skin around my lips and chin area for 6 days. While eating lunch a small amount of vinegar from my sandwich dribbled down my chin causing it to burn. I put ice on it for a couple of hours on and off to numb the area. I could not sleep due to the pain and discovered blisters the size of peas had formed the next morning.
It sounds like it could have. Metrocream in of itself has been known to cause skin irritation. You may actually have burned the area with the ice. You should never apply ice to bare skin because it can burn. Just the application of cool water should have been used. You need to make an appt to see your Dr asap or go to Urgent Care to have the blisters treated so they dont become infected. Your Dr will probably have you hold the Metrocream for a while but ask just the same. Dont delay in getting treatment because this area can become infected very easily.
