You have to be : Careful when you have a blister. Are you a diabetic or immunocompromised in any way? If it is getting worse meaning becoming red, hot or painful you need to see your physician to possibly get it drained, cultured and to start antibiotic therapy.

What kind of pain: In your chest? Is it sharp or like pressure? How long does it last? Do you get them at rest or with activity? If you press on your chest do you get that same pain? How long has this been going on? Are there any other associated symptoms such as sweating, shortness of breath, dizziness, nausea? Did you exert yourself recently? Have you been evaluated by a cardiologist?

I believe u mean: 100/54. If so, it is fine as long as you are not symptomatic. What i mean by that is feeling dizzy/lightheaded when you change position from laying to sitting up or from sitting to standing. If you are symptomatic then you need to inform your doctor. There are a number of situations that could cause you to be symptomatic with a low blood pressure.
