What could these symptoms be related too; small patch little blister that reoccur maybe 2, 3 times a year on same spot?
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. ...Read more
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.

1 nite stand months ago. No sores or blisters but Bolanitis symptoms 3 times since. Clears up completely after 3 days with anti bac soap. Herp or bola?
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. ...Read more
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.

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

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. ...Read more
I have had a recent bump outbreak in pubic area and I'm not sure what it is. Is it herpes, I've shown many symptoms of herpes with fevers&blisters.

Get seen right away so you can be evaluated and treated. Best wishes to you. ...Read more
Severe yeast infection? Herpes? Other things that causes sores/blisters? I'm now realizing i've had the symptoms of a yeast infection but i didn't get it treated because i wasn't thinking anything of it at the time. Now i believe it's gotten a lot worse.

I have a small red circumscribed patch on the glans of my penis for 3 weeks now. I had no pain, no blisters no itchiness and no generalized symptoms.
Red Patch on Penis:
A red patch on the head of the penis can arise for several reasons. If you are not circumcised, this could be inflammation, called balanitis. Steroid creams help. If you have started any new meds, it could be a fixed drug eruption. Stopping the meds helps, but it is a harmless event.
If it is growing in size and doesn't respond to the above in a week or two, i recommend a urological evaluation. ...Read more
