Blisters On My Chest
I'm 42 had a chicken pox vaccine last week. Injection site was red and swollen now have like a blister on my chest. Is that normal?

Abscesses?: Abscesses, boils, small carbuncles, etc. or whatever they may be called are very tough to treat and are often caused by underlying bacterial skin infections that occur locally and can "come and go."

Try domeboro: soaks to dry up blisters, but I would recommend figuring out the cause of the blisters. ( sun exposure, contact dermatitis, blistering disorder).

Have had a dull pain on left side of my neck for 7 days. 4 days ago i noticed a small cluster of 6 blisters right in the middle of chest. Shingles?
