My boyfriend is a long distance runner and quite serious about it. He's been training for the Equinox Marathon in Fairbanks this September. He's developed a serious blister on his heel however...

It's on the bottom of the foot and acquired it yesterday while blasting down a scree slope. It's about the size of a half dollar and he cut it open and drained it last night. I want to be as helpful as I can since it needs to be healed as much as possible by the 18th. What's the best way to dress it? Should we cut away the dead stuff? Use liquid bandaids? Any advice from long distance runners or ultrunners with experience in this area will be especially appreciated.
