Sorry to hear that....! In my experience, once they are there, they're gonna hurt! And I am VERY prone to blisters.... Depending on location, you might be able to switch to open back sandals or an older, 'slightly worn' shoe for a few days.
You didn't say if they were closed still or open. Hopefully closed!! If so, leave them that way. If they have a lot of fluid in them, I wouldn't plan to do any walking again for a few days...
I usually gently put a bandaid over them for some extra padding...and then add some athletic tape over that to keep down the extra chaffing. (And since I'm so prone, I now do the tape as a preventative measure!!) Another preventative which can also be used if the blister is small without a lot of fluid, is Body Glide. Its a dry lubricant, that might help cut the friction. ((I actually use their "liquefied powder" between my toes to prevent blisters---works great and easier than the Body Glide stick!!)
If they are open...you are now treating an open wound, and what you do will greatly depend on how you tolerate OTC antibiotics, etc. A call to your doctor is in order if they are large, you are unsure about care, or have diabetes, etc.!!
Some folks swear by sweat-wicking socks, or two pairs of socks to prevent. Plus/minus with my crazy feet....!
Best of luck, and take care,
