You need an exam: Although this could be a fungal infection, the description of blisters on a red base and pain could represent a viral infection such as herpes. The treatments are very different. See a clinic for a quick look and the correct diagnosis.

See doctor: It is impossible to know what the cause is without a more detailed history and a direct exam. At your age, it is unusual to have circulation problem with your hands and feet and thus there may be something systemic going on with the rash. See your doctor.
