A spot on my hip popped up tht looked like a blood blister but seemed to be attached to fat and was deep, was told its cellulitis and now its allover!
See your MD!: Cellulitis is a very serious infection and if it is spreading you need to see your doctor as soon as possible to evaluate your response to treatment. Even though you are already on Bactrim, (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) I would have your doc re-evaluate your treatment to determine why the redness is spreading. ...Read more

I have blisters that look purplish and some clear a little below my hip bone and a burning sensation around them that comes and goes but hurts, help.
Well, you are not: In the age group where we expect to see herpes zoster or shingles, but that might be what you have. It is difficult to say for sure without a picture (which you could upload to HealthTap for a Virtual Consult). Blistering rash with pain is the hallmark. Treatment is most effective when started within 3 days of seeing the rash: antiviral medicines (acyclovir, etc)/pain killers/topical antibiotics ...Read more

3 days ago I noticed tiny blisters and redness in 1 area of my buttocks. The redness and swelling has expanded across my hip and into the groin area. What is this?
This sounds like a possible cellulitis (skin infection). You will need to be examined by a doctor and get treated. Antibiotics will clear this up if it is in fact bacterial in nature, other possibilities are herpetic lesions, allergic reaction, or even bug bites.
If the issue has not resolved please seek medical attention.
Best of luck and happy new year. ...Read more

Recurrent shingles with Post-Herpetic Neuralgia between outbreaks? There is a lot more to it but not enough space here.....?
Maybe HSV, not VZV: Shingles rarely recurs so frequently but HSV does, and recurrent herpes simplex can look identical to zoster. 1) Retest next outbreak to confirm varicella zoster virus (VZV), and PCR test for HSV. 2) Have an HSV IgG antibody test, expecting maybe positive for HSV1. 3) Continue valacylovir to prevent recurrences, whatever the cause. As others have advised, it is nontoxic and harmless, so why not? ...Read more

Many possiblities: If the pain is in the groin area it may indicate a labral tear. If more on the outside of the hip it may be from an inflamed bursa. Ballet dancers may have irritation of several muscles around the hip including the iliopsoas. If the pain has been present for more than 1 month and is not improving an orthopaedic surgeon should evaluate and look at xrays to determine the cause, possibly an MRI. ...Read more
