Skin rash blisters

Common Questions and Answers about Skin rash blisters


Avatar m tn It is characterized by intense itching, usually at night and by small insect-type bites lesions on the skin. Diagnosis of scabies is made by scraping the skin and viewing the material under a microscope to see the characteristic mite or eggs. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar f tn Starts with itching, tingling, or pain in a certain area that later turns into a band, strip, or small area of rash. The rash turns into clusters of blisters. The blisters fill with fluid and then crust over. It takes 2 to 4 weeks for the blisters to heal, and they may leave scars. Some people only get a mild rash, and some do not get a rash at all.
Avatar f tn Specifically small red bumps underneath the skin. It started as a reaction to the strep throat but now its been over a month and the skin rash gets worse. He's also developed 4 blisters on the back of his calf that he says hurt and itch. He scratches from head to toe and can not find relief in any of the meds he's on (zyrtec, locoid). I don't believe it is eczema could you tell me what other possible skin problem he might have?
Avatar n tn my husband has a dry patch of skin with what appears to be small blisters underneath. when the blisters pop clear fluid comes out, and the skin dries and then peels. It does not seem to heal at all. He thought it was athletes foot, but athletes foot cream makes it worse. He is an EMT and wheres boots most of the time. Can you help me figure out what it is? Thank You.

Avatar f tn It heals slowly and with scarring. Though blisters are the most common skin manifestations of PCT, other skin manifestations like hyperpigmentation (as if they are getting a tan) and hypertrichosis (mainly on top of the cheeks) also occur. PCT is a chronic condition, with external symptoms often subsiding and recurring as a result of a number of factors.
Avatar n tn It usually affects children under 10 years of age and often starts with a feeling of being unwell for a day or so. Then there is fever and typical blisters like rash on hands, foot and inside mouth. As with other viral infections, antibiotics are not needed. Rest, plenty of fluids and acetaminophen if there is any fever is needed. I feel that you should consult a pediatrician and discuss it with him. Hope it helps.
Avatar n tn I have a strange rash it started with a couple little blisters in a circle it is about as big as a quarter it kind of blisters on the edge but the middle is healed like normal. What the heck is this.
Avatar f tn The first sign is usually a tingling feeling, itchiness, or stabbing pain on the skin. After a few days, a rash appears as a band or patch of raised dots on the side of the trunk or face. The rash develops into small, fluid-filled blisters which begin to dry out and crust over within several days. When the rash is at its peak, symptoms can range from mild itching to extreme and intense pain. A dermatologist’s evaluation will be the best. I hope it helps.
Avatar m tn Can you elaborate on the rash description? In particular, scabies is a transmissible ectoparasite skin infection characterized by superficial burrows, intense itching, which tends to be worse at night and secondary infection. The mites which cause scabies are not visible with the naked eye but can be seen with a magnifying glass or microscope. Transmission of the mites involves close person-to-person contact of the skin-to-skin variety. It would be best to have it evaluated by your doctor.
Avatar n tn In the past ,the skin condition seems to resolve spontaneously. Avoid any direct skin to skin contact with the area. As transmission is primarily through direct skin contact.
3094258 tn?1341979041 Thank you for your response. I am on triple therapy. Spoke w/doc and she just said to watch out for blisters and that to not worry otherwise. Use cool water to wash face daily. She just prescribed a mild anti-depressant too, although since I believe I am wonder woman, I did not want to do that. Oh well, I just began my 5th week of Pegasys, Incivic, and Ribofarin. Will find out my new viral load after the 4th of July. Crossing fingers that changes are good.
Avatar n tn Hi, welcome to the forum, your history is suggestive of that you are having drug allergy to the drug. Some patients have reported to have itching, blisters (in about 10%) and development of rash. If drug allergy is suspected you need to report your doctor immediately. Further exposure to drug may generate more IgE levels and can worsen the condition. Itching is a milder form of allergic manifestation. Even drug allergy can lead to hives including life threatening reactions.
Avatar m tn but neither could identify the rash, i am now waiting on blood and urine tests, the rash is worse the the arches and side of feet/ankles, they started deep under the skin and like u said are starting too itch, I am hoping they grow out?
206807 tn?1331936184 Both of my hands have broken out with a rash. They itch, have tiny blisters, and drive my nuts. Is this what is called Riba Rash?
Avatar m tn my wife started with little blisters on her hands, then they spread to different parts of her body, these are real small, hard blisters, she itches all the time, until the skin breaks, then it stops itching, but she has lots of little scars now. Now I am starting to get them, they do itch like crazy too!!! I have them on my hands, wrists, arms, legs and the tops of my feet. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/242603'>small, subdermal 'blisters'</a>.
Avatar n tn I had these blisters on my right hand only for the past 3 years they come and go. But my doctor told me to use the soap CETAPHIL on my hands and body. Also he told to avoid washing my hands to often, or to use latex gloves to avoid irritation on my hands when I use other type of soap. I try to follow instructions but it is hard sometimes. Yesterday I bought a cream at walmart it is called DERMAREST for psoriasis it has helped alot for my severe eczema that my doc diagnose my skin condition.
Avatar f tn To update, smoked again last night and no blisters again this morning. This is so odd.

Avatar n tn t think any pain or itching that is herpes related. How long after the rash do blisters form? What is the pain and itching like? (Will you know what it is when it happens) I now have some white-flaky 'dry skin' where the rash was. Is this a possible herpes out break? Can herpes look like this? That is, no obvious blisters but dry flacky skin. Also, what are the odds of contracting herpes after a one time protected encounter with no visable sores?
Avatar m tn The rash was circular and around the burn I developed small blisters which itch very bad. Usually worse at night. Where the blisters are is where it spreads. I also developed other patches which started out as blisters on the same hand. One on the corner of the wrist and palm and one on the inside of my index finger. I finally went to the doc at the VA but wasnt able to see him. They gave me antifungaClotrimazole Cream 1%. I applied as directed for over 2 weeks and it did not help.
Avatar f tn I'm 20 years old and I've had blood blisters on my waist, most likely from clothing friction, but now it's so much more widespread and it looks like a big rash. The only types of clothing that don't irritate the 'rash' are dresses, but it's getting cold out, and blood keeps getting all over my clothes from these blisters. My clothes fit just fine, but my skin doesn't think so. Is this a condition (like dermatitis)?
Avatar n tn Symptoms include redness and itching of the skin, development of rash and sometimes development of blisters from rash. Once it begins, the rash will usually clear on its own by 14-21 days. Treatment is directed at controlling the itching. You may take oral antihistaminics like benadryl or zyrtec.Also apply calamine lotion as it has a soothing effect on the skin.
Avatar f tn The spot your talking about sounds like a spot where your skin is made faster than normal, and sometimes friction can cause blisters. as the blisters begin to heal you can peel off the top revealing new skin underneath. Can you get a picture of it and post it on your profile? it's much easier to give you an idea of what it is when I can see it myself.
