Is it normal for a vesicular rash to erupt 7-10 days at the site of varicella vaccination in a 15 month old? The overall size of the rash is 1cm.

Is it normal for a vesicular rash to erupt 7-10 days at the site of varicella vaccination in a 15 month old? The overall size of the rash is 1cm.

Yes it can be: Varivax is a live virus vaccine. The incubation for natural chickenpox is 10-21 days. To have a little chickenpox rash at the site of the vaccine 7-10 days afterwards does happen in about 10% of cases. Some will develop mild chickenpox and break out all over the body.

What causes a blister rash on arms and legs after swimming?

What causes a blister rash on arms and legs after swimming?

Swimming rash: Basic skin sensitivity to treated water results in contact dermatitis, according to mayoclinic. Com. You develop reddened and irritated skin, sometimes with raised red bumps on your skin. Swimmer's itch is another skin condition that causes red and raised bumps or even blisters on your skin. Parasites in infected water cause swimmer's itch. The condition usually resolves itself after about one week.

What is the definition or description of: painful red blister rash?

What is the definition or description of: painful red blister rash?

It is what it is...: There can be multiple causes for a "painful red blister rash"--just as there are many variations for the color "red". Rashes are most difficult to diagnose without actually being seen by your doctor. So, rather than to guess about the diagnosis, you should schedule an appointment with your dermatologist /family doctor. If this is MRSA (methicillin resistent staph aureus), it could prove dangerous.

Blister or Rash?: What do you mean by rash? If ur talking about cold sores on or around your lip it takes times. Cold sores are most often from herpes virus type 1. If ur able to start an anti-viral medication like Acyclovir or valcyclovir within the first 48 hrs (the sooner u take it the more effective) it can significantly decrease how bad gets.

Can you get a blister rash from zyrtec (cetirizine)?

Can you get a blister rash from zyrtec (cetirizine)?

Possibly: Any reaction can occur to any medication is the common mantra that allergists use. Those blistering rashes are not commonly caused by zyrtec (cetirizine), (cetirizine) it is possible. I would think that it is probably something other than zyrtec (cetirizine).

Can you get a blister rash 2 weeks after taking zyrtec (cetirizine)?

Can you get a blister rash 2 weeks after taking zyrtec (cetirizine)?

Unlikely: It's unlikey that a blistering rash occur that far after taking zyrtec (cetirizine). I would look at other causes including infections, contact reactions due to plants or chemicals, or other new medications.

I have blister/rash all around my body it starts out as a blister then days later its a scab then it peels off and it leaves a white spot?

I have blister/rash all around my body it starts out as a blister then days later its a scab then it peels off and it leaves a white spot?

Sounds uncomfortable: That sounds uncomfortable, and could be caused by many things/factors. Not enough history or details to make an educated guess. Rashes are tough things to evaluate from a distance...I would strongly suggest that you see your family doc for an evaluation and possible referral to a dermatologist...

Shingles?: It may also be a case of shingles. See you doctor to make sure that you get the right Rx since the severity and duration of shingles can be reduced if treated within the first 48 hrs. Even if it is not, painful blister is not something to be ignored.

I have a really bad blister rash that itches terribly an has continued to spread for about two weeks they are mainly on my fingers an back eczema?

Blister rash: 1). This rash needs to be evaluated " in person" to come up with some conclusive differential 2). The distribution and duration sounds like - scabies or eczema super- infected with bacteria or virus or sone other rash of viral origin. Fungal rash when super infected with bacteria also act like your description.

Blister Rash: There are many skin conditions that can cause blisters: bacterial infections, fungal infections, viral infections, drug reactions, autoimmune conditions, and an allergic reaction to chemicals or poison ivy. Your friend needs to visit a dermatologist for a diagnosis and treatment.
