Try to keep it off of the hide. Sometimes in hot weather a lot of diesel in one spot can blister pretty badly.

I've kind of settled in on a dose of a daily antibiotic and flossing between the toes with a length of gauze soaked in iodine. Turn them out in a dry pen. If they are walking significantly better the next day and there isn't an oozing wound on the foot, I give them a dose of LA, hit them with iodine again, put an X with a paint stick on their hip or shoulder to mark the bad leg and turn them back out with the herd.
