Doctor can evaluate: Rashes are hard to describe in words. Usually, a doctor has to look at a rash to see what it might be.

This rash could be a few different things.
— impetigo is a skin infection caused by bacteria — either streptococcus or staph. This needs to be treated with antibiotics.
— contact dermatitis is skin inflammation. It can be caused by plants such as poison ivy or poison oak or it can be from contact of a chemical or item that a person is particularly sensitive to. 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.
