This is usually treated with steroid creams or oral steroids. - viral illness such as chicken pox, shingles or herpes can also cause painful blisters on a red base. This can be treated with anti-virals or just needs to run its course depending on the severity of the infection. The best thing to do is to contact his doctor and have him seen, since each possible problem requires different treatments. Good luck. ...Read more
