Blisters on the butt: Blisters in the buttock and leg area could indicate shingles- especially if they fit in a certain pattern called a dermatome. Usually it is older folks who get shingles, after having had chicken pox. Other viruses can do that, so can bacteria. Perhaps there is something in your environment causing this? such as time in a hot tub, chafing from some activity... If it is troublesome u should see MD.
