Irritant dermatitis?: If you wash your arms and hands a lot, the skin gets dry. Once it gets irritated, anything you put on may hurt you. The itching and blister point more to a contact allergy. Try avoiding scented or antibacterial soap and too much washing. If problem persists, talk to doctor or a dermatologist to pin down what the culprit may be. Patch testing may be needed.
