Sound like a burn: Your symptoms are suggestive of a burn, or sunburn, as in a 1st degree burn, where you have redness and blisters but no true deep skin damage. It is typical for a rash to clear and have blisters left over; they are tiny areas of inflammation fluid left over from the active rash process. It sounds like it is resolving. If it persists are recurs, you should probably see a dermatologist.

You are on the right path, see the doc you need to see for the referral. Also, use unscented mild dilute soaps, detergents and no fabric softeners. Good luck, let us know what you have! Send another note with diagnosis, please. Thanks for the Thank You note, too!
