    First of all to the squirrel board.If your not taking the baby to a vet just because its illigal to keep a squirrel, its a bad thing coz you are putting the life of the baby at risk.
    The blisters are caused by 2 things.1.he is not clean.you should clean him after his every meal with a damp warm cotton ball and let him poo, pee.& then he must be cleaned well.
    2.Babies suckle their body parts.that causes blisters sometimes.

    The best thing is to take him to a vet or a rehabber.

    It sounds like irritation from urine. I would try to wipe him with a warm rag fairly often. You could also rub some triple antibiotic ointment on his parts. That will help to kill any infection.

    No particular brand. Just make sure it is a triple antibiotic ointment without pain killer. Ointment will work better than cream because it will repel moisture.

    If this squirrel is five months old than he shouldn't have any urine burns. That would make him about 20 weeks of age, he should be eating on his own and keeping himself clean. I would say their is something more going on with him such as a bladder infection. What has his diet consisted of and what kind of formula did you raise him on? Also, what kind of squirrel is he?
