Lichen planis: There are numerous afflictions that affect the skin of different parts of the body. Skin sores or rashes, genital lesions and ulcers, and oral manifestations are common. If you have any oral lesions or markings of gums, lips or tongue, I would look into being tested for lichen planis. It is similar to some other diseases but not an infection from virus, bacteria, or yeast. See dermatologist. ...Read more

I get frequent blisters in my armpits and sometimes in my groin area. I usually just apply antiseptics, and they drain all by themselves after a while, but then they recur. What could be the cause of it?

I get frequent blisters in my armpits and sometimes in my groin area. I usually just apply antiseptics, and they drain all by themselves after a while, but then they recur. What could be the cause of it?

Infection?: "Blister" normally means superficial, filled with clear fluid. I can't explain something like that. Maybe allergy? But if these are deeper bumps that drain pus, sometimes with blood, then you may be having recurrent staph or strep infections. Or maybe a chronic problem called hidradenitis suppurativa. See a doctor, preferably a dermatologist or infectious diseases specialist. Good luck! ...Read more

3 days ago I noticed tiny blisters and redness in 1 area of my buttocks. The redness and swelling has expanded across my hip and into the groin area. What is this?

This: This sounds like a possible cellulitis (skin infection). You will need to be examined by a doctor and get treated. Antibiotics will clear this up if it is in fact bacterial in nature, other possibilities are herpetic lesions, allergic reaction, or even bug bites.
If the issue has not resolved please seek medical attention.
Best of luck and happy new year. ...Read more

Can HSV 1or2 travel without contact or is it shingles? Shin has itchy blisters with shinbone/leg/groin pain/fatigue. Have had HSV forever.

See answer: If you have orofacial or genital herpes (hsv-1/hsv-2), you cannot transmit the infection to another part of your body after initial infection occurs. That said, with genital herpes, one has infection of the l-4, l-5, and s-1 nerve roots which innervate the rectal area, buttocks and lateral aspect of the thigh and so outbreaks can occur in those areas. Shingles can affect any area of the body. ...Read more
