Mostly normal : Blisters from hand, foot, and mouth disease are commonly found in all places that you mentioned except for possibly your torso and face. Here's some more info from the CDC: http://www.cdc.gov/hand-foot-mouth/about/signs-symptoms.html. If you're at all concerned that you have a different or additional infection, you should see your doctor. Best wishes!
