Facial skin blisters

Common Questions and Answers about Facial skin blisters


Avatar n tn I think I may have a skin infection of some sort-for two months now I have had 3 or 4 facial blisters almost constantly. I'm a 28-year old female They aren't a acne or an infected follicle, this is different. It is a blister (but not a cold sore), usually on my chin, it starts as a fluid-filled bump with a tiny whitehead. Once the blister is open it weeps yellowish liquid almost constantly for a day or two. It will go away after 3-5 days, but another one always comes up right after.
Avatar m tn 3 or 4 days ago I began to develop a skin rash on my face. Small red blisters, they weep a small amount of clear fluid. Not painful. I am in good health, with no previous medical conditions. I am surprised to get this. I am teaching in rural Thailand and there is no medical immediately available. Any clues would be useful. Do I need to see a Dr urgently? Or just wait till it goes away? Or spread something on my face?
Avatar m tn Since last 3 days, I have small round red blisters on upper lip/moustache area skin. They are about 2 mm each and they are in a cluster of 5-6. Sometimes their head turn yellow and ooze out yellow liquid like tiny droplet. But most times they remain red and round. I don't think they are in grown moustache hair because there are 2 blisters not on hair area. I don't think it's herpes because its not painful at all and I do not have any other herpes symptoms.
Avatar n tn The nurse stopped and applied an ice pack to the skin. I had immediate blistering and the skin has turned very brown in that area. She has told me not to worry, just to keep the area clean and apply neosporin and cortisone cream. The blisters are now starting to pop today. I am very worried that I may scar. Is there anything else that I should be doing. I normally use hydroqinone for brown spots on my face from acne. I am not using it now.
Avatar f tn I do not wear makeup or lipstick, so it can't be that. I am 71 years old and have never had a facial skin problem, not even as a teenager. I do have a couple patches of eczema on my back. That itches, but this will tingle a little bit, but doesn't itch, right before the blisters appear.
Avatar n tn The rash is quite red It does not itch There are no bumps or blisters It does sting There is a very light dry skin/skin peel going on It seems to be worse in the morning, and lessens in the afternoon It has lasted approximately (3) days I have had this before. It seems to happened about twice per year. The last time it showed up, it lasted approximately (10) days.
Avatar n tn There are some areas where i peel off large pieces of dry brown skin and under it is smooth pink skin (like under a scab) and in some spots the skin is bright red (doesnt look like new skin). Also there are a couple of dime sized spots where scabs (clear scabs, not like dried blood) have formed and under it are soft pink areas sensitive to the touch (again definitely not new skin). I cannot tell how severe these burns are.
Avatar n tn okay, my daughter is 11 and woke up one morning about 2 weeks ago with a red spot off to the side of her chin which looked like it was raised with possible little blisters in the middle then the doctor treated her for impetigo with infection on it and it finally scabbed and cleared up just yesterday, now all of a sudden today we notice a spot on the side of her nose very very close to her eye that looks like its gonna turn into the same thing, right now its red and kida round and maybe slightly
Avatar n tn Hi Common warts are local growths in the skin caused by Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) infection. Sometimes thread-like wart (filiform warts) may develop on the face. They are generally diagnosed clinically, on the basis of location and appearance. Sometimes a biopsy may be recommended by the doctor to differentiate it from other similar conditions like corn or callus.
Avatar m tn If you have blisters at tip of fingers and dry skin then you need to rule out certain conditions such as diabetes, psoriasis, hypothyroidism, contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis and malnutrition. Generalized itching can be due to allergy. Common allergens are pollen, mold, dust, pet dander, synthetic fiber, food, cosmetics (powders, soaps, shampoos—see if anything was recently changed) or drugs. Food allergies like to gluten, lactose, sea food, and alcohol etc too should be looked into.
Avatar n tn My undiagnosed ailment has affected my blood pressure, heart rate, vitamin b12, sinuses, gait, skin color, and circulation. Left sided facial numbness from the top of my forehead, ear, throat, shoulder, arm, tongue.
Avatar n tn Dandruff may also present as blisters caused by clogging of the skin pores and then lead to development of blisters. Rosacea presents with inflammation of the T area of the face and is realted to solar exposure. each of these is a distinct entity and may need analysis. However, you may avoid the sun, use minimal cosmetics, and apply some OTC anti-infective agents. let me know if you may need more information.
Avatar f tn However, it is not recommended to use it in the face especially near the eyes and other mucous membranes. It has a tendency to dry out the skin and if it contacts these areas it can become an irritant itself. It is best that you have this checked by your doctor for proper management. Avoid scratching also to prevent secondary bacterial infection. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn My facial skin feels really tight and sort of numb in a lot of different places. Since Thursday I have applied hydrogen peroxide, rubbing alcohol, acne spot applicator, multiple face washes and I thought that I had stopped the process and they were healing. At least until about 12 hours ago when all of the new out of place tingling numbing and burning sensation are coming from. My throat is already starting to feel swollen.
Avatar m tn I have taken her to the dr and first they prescribed cephalexin which cleared them up within a day and she did not receive any more -- after a 10 day dose, 1 week later - the blisters started again -- she did another round of cephalexin and it worked again but then after finishing the blisters came back -- Dr then put me on erythromycin which didn't work AT ALL - made skin oily and blisters still appeared -- The dr just took a culture but now has put her on clindamycin pads and she is still get
Avatar n tn about four days ago she broke out around the mouth on nose and all is like boils, red, pus-filled then scaly and peeling. Dr. prescribed an anti-viral for herpes/fever blisters but (both parents are healthy) baby is now breaking out on her legs and trunk. I noticed small pin-point size dots starting on her two weeks ago when I fed her her first formula. My babies used to break out mildly like this when I fed them soy or milk formula until I switched to lactose-free.
Avatar f tn Hi everyone, My GP was once a skin specialist and she says that it is most likely that I have facial herpes (coldsores, fever blisters). She has given me some anti-viral drugs to stop the recurrences, however if they still come back we go back to the drawing board. My appointment with the dermatologist should be in around 8 weeks and I should have my blood tests back later this week. I will update you as soon as I have some concrete news!
Avatar n tn Blisters...blisters.. It started about 3 years ago when I saw them FIRST on my palms 1-2 no more. Then it was worse, they started to itch so I ran to the doctor. He sent the skin piece to the test and it came back with 0 result. Nothing grew. The doc said the palms' blisters is a reaction to what's going on with my feet. It was going on almost nothing that time but what I have now is horrible. Biopsy from my foot showed clearly Dyshidrotic Eczema.
Avatar n tn I'm a 22 year old woman who recently started getting these very tiny blisters beneath the first layer of skin. This is the clear (dead skin) layer. I am not very good at medical terminology but I would suggest to people to look up Blisters and Skin to do some research. This is what I've found. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dyshidrosis I have yet to hear about this from my doctors but I'll be going in and asking about it. The images match the tiny clusters on my hand exactly.
Avatar m tn I am having a problem with a rash that radiates downward from the sides of my lips. There are no blisters or bumps, it's just red. This area is also particularly dry with flaky skin, particularly close to the sides of the lips. Sweat and toothpaste cause the redness to increase significantly and produce pain. The toothpaste I'm using is very strong - Aquafresh Extreme Clean. From the time I began using it the area has become increasingly more irritated.
Avatar n tn starts with red bumps and turns into water filled little blisters. The skin on the blisters wipes off really easily then they bleed. it flakes nonstop, and spreads really quickly. I have no red areas other than the bumps, and no flushed looking areas on my face. ive tried drinking lots of water, watching what i ate, etc...no avail. i have tried different make up, different facial cleansers...NOTHING works! I don't have acne problems. This is not acne.

Avatar m tn alopecia , bruising, dry mouth, dry skin, flushing, fragility of skin, hair abnormalities, hyperpigmentation and hypopigmentation, pruritus, abnormal wound healing .A clinical examination may be necessary for appropriate diagnosis and treatment of your condition. It would be best to inform your doctor about this for proper management. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn This could be a type of dermatitis, irritation or infection such as shingles. Shingles are a painful outbreak of skin rash or blisters on the face or one side of the body. This is also caused by the same virus that causes chicken pox. Risk of developing shingles increases if one has already had chicken pox or in folks over the age of 50. Antiviral medications will help reduce the pain and severity.Over-the-counter pain medications may also help.
Avatar n tn A 2 month old baby boy exposed to crystal meth and crack cocain pre ntally is now covered with a severe rash there appear to be little blisters under the rash then his skin dries and can be gently was hed off. |I woould like to know is it possible that the drus his morther took while carrying him are the cause of this rash. I have to tell you that I am rinsing his clothes two and three times.
Avatar f tn -Saran wrap feeling goes away, little blisters begin to form around my nose and on my temples. I think blisters are actually forming everywhere on my face and neck, some are just deeper. If I stretch an area of my skin out, I can see cyst/blister-like things underneath. I also see some very small pustules/whiteheads and a few hard cysts. -Many of the blisters break open on their own, leaving raw places -My whole face burns and stings My doc tried me on an antibiotic, but it got worse!
Avatar n tn While at the doc I mentioned how blisters were appearing on my hands as well as fragile skin when I hit my hands on something that normally wouldn't even show a red mark. The skin was just peeling back like an apple. He asked a bunch of questions and told me he thought I had prophyria cutanea tarda and that I could have been exposed to hepc. I had a blood transfusion back in 71 and was the only way I thought I may have been exposed.
Avatar n tn 1) I am seeing quite a bit of facial scarring and want to take care of this---what are the dermatological options for skin repair? 2)how do I reduce these facial outbreaks? Must I be on a daily dose of acyclovir? if so, what are the dangers of resistance, and what should my dosage be? As I age (I am 37) I am seeing a pattern of recurrence, and am worried about this. Thanks very much.
