Vitamin D: While the blister is unlikely to be due from vitamin d, the dose you are taking is high and should be under medical guidance. Your doctor will check your level to determine what dose you should be taking.

Way too much: There is no reputable science that supports such a high dosage of vitamin d and in fact you may be at a toxic level. 1000 iu is more than enough at any age if you can't get at least 15-30 minutes of sun exposure a day. The rash my be unrelated but stop the vitamin d immediately for at least a couple of weeks.
