Depends on location: Most bliters on feet or heel can be from tight shoes.Burns are second commonest cause of blisters. Contact dermatitis can cause blisters which can recur and can be in on same spot and heat exposure is another cause by sun burn.

I have a cluster of painless blisters on my belly a half a centimeter in diameter. Noticed it yesterday. No other symptoms. What is it?

I have a cluster of painless blisters on my belly a half a centimeter in diameter. Noticed it yesterday. No other symptoms. What is it?

A thought: Do you wear pants with a metal fastener? Does wearing jewelry ever cause skin irritation? A thought that comes to mind is nickel allergy, which can usually be diagnosed by history. Patch testing can confirm. If not nickel, some form of contact irritation or allergy seems likely given the small area of involvement. A Dermatologist or Allergist can help.

I am on a gluten free diet. Once in a dh blisters show up. How much time goes by between eating gluten and showing the symptoms (i.E. Blisters)?

I am on a gluten free diet. Once in a dh blisters show up. How much time goes by between eating gluten and showing the symptoms (i.E. Blisters)?

Variable: Your dh lesions are dependent on your body's production of IgA antibodies to epidermal transglutaminase (etg), which may take several years to resolve, even after strict avoidance of dietary gluten. You may want to discuss initiating Dapsone with your physician for treatment if this continues to be a significant issue.

What are the symptoms of genital herpes between blister outbreaks?

What are the symptoms of genital herpes between blister outbreaks?

NONE: But we know that the virus is present occasionally between attacks. Thus you may be contagious when there are no symptoms. In fact most transmission occurs from a person who does not know she carries the virus or from a known infected person during a time with no symptoms. Antiviral meds reduce the risk of infecting another person but are not 100% effective.

I'm having symptoms of blisters on my ankle from the friction and I also got blister (s) on my foot and heel. What is the best thing to do?

I'm having symptoms of blisters on my ankle from the friction and I also got blister (s) on my foot and heel. What is the best thing to do?

Bad shoes: Blisters are the skin's reaction to high shearing forces. There is something that is rubbing on your skin causing them to develop. Correct the shoes will be helpful. Have to be careful with 2 pairs of socks or using Vaseline. They can make the problem worse when used in the wrong situation.

How come I would sometimes get the prodrome symptoms of oral herpes but never the actual blister?

How come I would sometimes get the prodrome symptoms of oral herpes but never the actual blister?

Immunity: The varying degrees of immune mechanisms which keep herpes simplex virus in check are not fully understood. We know that some people are prone to frequent outbreaks and others have none, and some, like you, get only partial symptoms. Consider yourself fortunate.

Symptoms of shingles. Are they blisters on red spot?

Symptoms of shingles. Are they blisters on red spot?

In a pattern: They are groups of painful blisters on a red base, in a linear distribution from one location on the back or neck, extending around the torso or neck (or face) to the body's midline in front. If there is more than one narrow band of blisters, or if the blisters extend past the midline either in front or in back, it's not shingles.

I have blister like bumps on my chin. They are filled with clear fluid. No head or pus. And they seem to spread. No other symptoms.

See a dermatologist: Without seeing these and getting a full history, including a list of any medications you may be on it is impossible to speculate on a diagnosis.

What are the chances to have unprotected sex having herpes and not spread the virus if I am not having any symptoms (blisters) of the disease?

Asymptomatic Shed: Asymptomatic shedding is very real and one of the biggest reasons why it's possible for people with herpes to pass herpes virus on to a sexual partner without having any signs or symptoms. That's pretty much what asymptomatic means: you can't see or feel that the virus is present and active on the surface of the skin. 70% of herpes is spread by asymptomatic shedding of the virus.

Get seen ASAP: If you want to know what disease or diseases you might have, especially if you are concerned about sexually transmitted diseases, you need testing in real life. Many sexually transmitted diseases "travel together." Avoid intercourse until you have had a pelvic exam and STD testing, including herpes and HIV. Get seen right away so you can be evaluated and treated. Best wishes to you.

Recurring painless, clear blister on back inside gums, can this be from bruxism (no other symptoms and no abscess diagnosed with exam and xrays)?
