Common Questions and Answers about Skin rash vesicles

Avatar n tn Hi, Based on your description of the rash, it does not sound like a herpes infection. Herpes appears with vesicles or bumps that contain a clear fluid. They also occur in clusters and they have a reddish base. Is this similar to what you have? HSV type 1 may affect the genitals with direct contact but not all persons exposed to the virus will acquire it. There are several factors involved like the person's immune response and the frequency of the contact which may affect viral load.
Avatar m tn   Im afraid for my life and pray to god its not.. and just skin rash. It doesnt hurt. Nor am I swelling or have a flu or any abdominal pain... what could this be??? Link to pic http://i60.tinypic.com/1zlrr6p.
Avatar n tn I dont have any allergies except to dust or pollen. The rash appears beneath the skin. I dont think I have any vesicles. The rash appears only on small part. What do you mean by vasicules ...can you me picture of how it looks like or maybe a description. Do you think it is caused if you dont drink enough water? I have read that these happen usually when you havenot drink any water. I dont frinking much water maybe a glass or two a day.
Avatar n tn You can apply some calamine lotion at the rash as it will help in soothing the skin. You can take some OTC oral antihistamine medications like Benadryl or Claritin and see if it helps. For mild-moderate eczema a weak steroid may be used (e.g. hydrocortisone as dermacort), whilst more severe cases require a higher-potency steroid (e.g. clobetasol propionate, fluocinonide). Eczema can be exacerbated by dryness of the skin. Use good quality moisturizers to prevent moisture loss from the skin.
Avatar n tn However, these vesicles may pop and form yellowish crusts and blisters. HSV type 1 infections also may present as clear vesicles on reddish bumps on the skin. It is best to have this assessed early on as we are considering infectious skin conditions as differentials here. Cover exposed areas with a sterile gauze specially those involving the fingers or palms to avoid infecting other parts of the body.
Avatar n tn HPV appears as vesicles that are usually clustered together and these vesicles may have a burning and tingling sensation. Was this similar to your skin condition? Refrain from any sexual activity until this has completely resolved.
Avatar m tn A couple of the puncture wounds are already healed up, but this blistery rash continues. The rash is made up of numerous small bumps around the still healing and already healed puncture wounds. Sometimes, if I don't pay attention and I manage to bump my arm, these little bubbles will 'pop' and leave behind some clear fluid. I am constantly washing the affected area with antibacterial soap, yet even the 'popped' bumps return to my skin. What do I do?
Avatar m tn 1. Was/Is there any blisters (vesicles)? Describe qualities of fluid inside vesicles such as color (transparent, white, yellow, etc.), and density (thickness of fluid). 2. Any itching? Any pain? 3. Were/Are your hands exposed to certain allergens/irritants (chemicals)? 4. Did/Do you have a fungal infection on your feet? Wishing You Optimal Health, Dr.
Avatar n tn I saw the images and they do appear reddish and appeared a little inflamed. There are no vesicles or scaling present which may suggest a dermatitis. However, one thing to consider here may be a contact dermatitis or irritant dermatitis. Contact or allergic dermatitis may present with redness or itchiness not necessarily with the vesicles and blisters. Are there any known triggers which may possible cause this like detergents, lotions or some chemicals which may lead to this?
Avatar n tn About a week ago I got a strange skin rash or infection on my back, Its sore and a little painful, It has delevoped small blisters. Its about the size of a half dollar. Any ideas what it could be? it dosent seem to be going away.
Avatar n tn m not sure if its herpetic whitlow or some form of herpes or just maybe a skin rash or wart. I have been having this issue for about 12-18 months now but it occurs when I rub my finger against a ruff surface. I thought it could be herpetic whitlow because my cubicles sometimes break, and thats where I question if I contracted herpes but I have never had any symptoms of this virus anywhere on my body.
Avatar n tn I had a sexual encounter with a random woman a week ago. I have since acquired a rash on the underside of my penis that extends from the base to the foreskin, as well as another malady that I have already gotten antibiotics for. There are a few red bumps (a few in clusters) along with red, irritated skin but no blisters or sores. There is no pain and I never got any flu-like symptoms.
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.
Avatar m tn This also appears itchy. The rash consists of clear vesicles or blisters and they do seem to appear in small clusters. Wash the area with a mild cleanser. Note the possible triggers that may be causing the rash to appear. Dust, sweat and heat may be contributory to this. I would not think this to be due to an infection. Viral exanthems or rash usually involve the whole body. Apply 0.05% Fluocinonide cream thinly over the area. Do not apply on normal skin.
Avatar m tn The size of rash, type of rash, color of rash and associated symptoms all are necessary to be known before diagnosing any condition. Contact dermatitis, Psoriasis, heat rash, chicken pox all can cause rashes in these areas of the body. Other possibilities are candidiasis, fungal infections, parasitic infestations like scabies etc. In herpes there is a cluster of vesicles on a red base. In moist areas like the vagina it may cause ulcerations. Consult a dermatologist for a better evaluation.
Avatar f tn Hi there I have this vesicular rash all over my abdomen and I have no idea what it is. It's slightly itchy but not anything major. Please could somebody help.
Avatar m tn It is characterized by a sudden onset of many deep-seated pruritic, clear vesicles which itch and then peel off. As a result the skin may also fissure. It may get aggravated by stress. The exact cause is not known and excessive sweating can be one of the reasons. But some triggers like allergic reaction to soaps, detergents, foods, latex, nickel etc may trigger the symptoms. Apply some calamine lotion on the affected area and keep the area well moisturized.
Avatar m tn Hello, It can be frictional lichenoid dermatitis or dermatitis herpetiformis. Typical symptoms include burning, stinging, and intense itching and rash consists of small vesicles on the extensor aspects like the knee. It is an autoimmune blistering disorder associated with a gluten-sensitive enteropathy. Investigation which needs to be done is biopsy skin which is the only investigation to diagnose this condition.
Avatar m tn re small, and after a week they peel and come off, and there is fresh skin underneath that bump. The bumps are dark reddish, almost brown. What can cause this, and what is this? Please help. Here is a link to the picture; http://i898.photobucket.com/albums/ac184/Nick2002gli/image001.jpg This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/241522'>Rash on Foot</a>.

Avatar m tn Pompholyx is characterized by a sudden onset of many deep-seated pruritic, clear vesicles which itch and then peel off. As a result the skin may also fissure. Treatment is different for all. I suggest you to get an evaluation done from a dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar m tn Day 3....vesicles/shiny skin still there....part of the rash on the topside of my penis which used to have vesicles on it no longer has visible vesicles, but is hurting. Last night I realized I couldn't lie on my stomach since it hurt the skin on the top side....now walking irritates this one area of redness.... Not sure what to do....it's now relatively painful to the touch and makes walking a chore...

I had protected sex with a new partner for the first time tuesday. thursday we also had unprotected sex. prior to both occurences, groomed using an old set of clippers, particularly in the area affected. on friday i started noticing scattered small red bumps only on the scrotum up to the base of the penis. saturday they were the most prominent. today, they have started to flatten and dry out, but they are still very visible.
