What could it be when you get blister spots on buttock and leg they have been coming out over the last 3 weeks?

Blisters on the butt: Blisters in the buttock and leg area could indicate shingles- especially if they fit in a certain pattern called a dermatome. Usually it is older folks who get shingles, after having had chicken pox. Other viruses can do that, so can bacteria. Perhaps there is something in your environment causing this? Such as time in a hot tub, chafing from some activity...
If it is troublesome u should see MD. ...Read more

These involve only skin & subcutaneous tissue; frequently recur after surgery. Cysts can also occur at the lower end of spinal canal, called meningoceles. These are deep structures & potentially quite serious. But the 2 conditions are quite different. Ask your doctor which you have. ...Read more

Probably not herpes: Herpes simplex (HSV) outbreaks typically are a cluster of blisters or sores (which can start as red bumps) very close to one another. Usually the whole involved area is no more than an inch in diameter. Conceivably herpes zoster (shingles), but probably not unless the bumps become blisters then sores with dark scabs over a few days. See a doctor if it continues or you remain concerned. Good luck. ...Read more

Maybe herpes: Sounds like onset of herpes simplex infection. You'll know in a day or so--lesions will probably hurt more and itch less. If they stay itchy, possible fungal infection.

For herpes, BHT (available on line or health food store) 2, 000 mg per day (taken in divided doses). Lesions should clear up in a day or two. Another "home remedy" is to apply DMSO ("horse liniment") from a veterinary supply. ...Read more

I'm 32 now been having outbreaks of blisters all over my buttocks and cocyx since I was 6 weeks old. Viral swab shows HSV type 1. Is this common?
