My 2 yr old son has hand foot mouth disease. Is there way to dry up blisters/rash faster? We have event Saturday we need to go, its Tues. Fever gone.
None but...: Hand-foot-mouth disease is generally self-limited, and a 7-day duration is average.
Hair dye allergy. Given iterax and prednisone fter 1 day, blisters dry up and startng to flake, but fave is swelling. Is this normal?
Contact Dermatitis: Acute allergic contact dermatitis to hair dye causes lesions that consist of red, swollen, scaly plaques with evidence of fluid filled blisters in severe cases. Swelling may be prominent in areas in which the skin is thin such as the eyelids and lips on the face. Avoidance of triggers is the primary treatment followed by topical steroid creams and if severe oral steroids. See Allergist for details
The past few days I have woken up to my soft plate being dry and then swollen for the day. No blisters or anything and I feel perfectly fine.?
Palate swelling: If the soft palate is truly swollen it may be from angioedema which indicates an allergic reaction. An infection is less likely in the absence of pain and tenderness. Mouth breathing during sleep accounts for the dryness but shouldn't cause swelling. A physician or Otolaryngologist could evaluate your palate and advise you.
I was recovering from HFM - my blisters were almost all dried up. I woke up this morning with red inflamed vesicles again. Can it recur this fast?
Chickenpox, 8th day. Some blisters start to dry up. But others still have lightgray fluid. Are they also starting to heal or dry up? How long will I wait?
Almost Over: If they are starting to dry up, you are healing. Good rule of thumb is that when they are all scabbed, it is over. Sounds like several more days.
10th day of adult chickenpox. About 100 blisters still filled w/whitish fluid, still won't pop and dry out. How long will I wait? What to do w/ d blisters?
Get prescription: You should get a prescription for treating the chicken pox. It is much more severe in adults. See your doctor for the medicine.
Keep it clean: When a skin cut or sore is healing, a scab forms. That dries and gets flaky. As the skin heals from underneath it, the scab ultimately falls off. Before it's ready to fall off, it can be scraped or pulled off because it's "almost healed". As the fresh skin under the scab may not be as tough as other skin, it needs help by keeping it clean for a few days. Wash with soap/water 3-4 times a day.See 2 more doctor answers

What was inside my blister looked like dry skin but it was hard and crumbly underneath the dead skin?
Not enough info: Please resubmit your query with additional information. This should include (1) where the blister is on your body (2) what might have caused the blister in the first place (3) how long the "blister" has been there & (4) whether or not the area is healing on its own. Better still, take advantage of a Health Tap Virtual Visit, provide this info & upload a picture. Good luck!
If: The blister has flattened about a week to dry up.
Although: Some people have used rubbing alcohol on Shingle's lesions - warm soap and water is a simple & effective approach.
Yes: It kinda makes sense. Try more forplay or at least some lube.
I have herpes zoster, my blisters are starting to dry but it's also starting to turn into pus, is that okay?
See MD: If you see pus you may have a secondary infection. You may need antibiotics.
Strange white, dry blisters on arm. No itchiness/pain. Bleed profusely when accidentally rubbed. What is it?
Psoriasis: These strange white blisters that bleed profusely when rubbed off sound like psoriasis, a candidal infection, or epidermolysis bulosa. Without the itching a candidal infection is very unlikely. Epidermolysis bulosa is typically diagnosed at a younger age. Therefore, this is most likely psoriasis which responds best to light therapy and steroidal treatments.
