2 separate times in Aug developed large itchy blister on ankle, thought was spider, urgent care treated. Now yesterday same spot blister on ankle?

Could the spider: Of been hungry again? Your options inlcude having it treated a second time but instead of going to urgent care see a dermatologist or podiatrist. Take a picture in case the blister should look different when you go to the doctor. The doctor could opt for a biopsy which may shed light on if there is a fungal component or traumatic, or autoimmune etc....

Two tiny, spot-sized, very itchy blisters on my ankle, why is this?

Bites?: Insect bites in that location would be the most likely. Try an antihistamine medication or cream for itching and see your doctor if they do not resolve or spread.

Prickly heat? Very itchy ankles, full of tiny blisters and swollen. It is also spreading to behind my knees. It seems to start in warm weather. Help!

Sounds like eczema: Ankles & behind the knees are common places for eczema. Most of the time, eczema flares in the winter when it's cold and dry, but can flare in the spring & summer. Blisters may be part of eczema or a superinfection with bacteria or even viruses, like herpes. Herpes infection of eczema has little ulcers and is very painful. Since there are blisters, best to show it to your dermatologist asap.

Open blister on heel. I wore bandaids for 8 hours & was fine. Took them off & an hour later had itchy, linear welt across ankle. Late latex allergy?

Without seeing: Hard to guess, but you obviously need to take care of this open wound. If you plan on walking I would apply betadine solution (assuming no iodine allergy) and then a piece of gauze and rolled gauze over that staying away from adhesive and latex.

May need tx: The rash that you are describing could be a contact dermatitis. It is hard to know without seeing it and knowing more details. You may need a topical steroid stronger that OTC steroid for treatment. Benadryl will not make it go away but may help with the symptom of itch. Please feel free to make an appointment with me to be evaluated for further treatment.

Insect bite?: Hard to know what this is without seeing it. If the area of redness and warmth and tenderness continues to increase would recommend seeing a doctor asap.

Red and itchy leg also now blistering?

Red and itchy leg also now blistering?

Blistering rash: Blisters with redness and itch can signify a contact dermatitis such as poison ivy or oak or sumac if indeed you have had exposure to weeds or vines outdoors. I would suggest white vinegar soaks and apply Hydrocortisone cream 2-3x/day. If the condition worsens, please see a dermatologist.

Blisters: A blister can be a symptom of a variety of disorders, diseases or conditions including infection, inflammation, trauma, allergic reaction, and other abnormal processes. Some causes may be relatively mild, such as blisters on the feet from ill-fitting shoes or blisters on the hands from working with garden tools.

I have an unknown itchy rash with blisters under my left foot s toes the dr says its not fungal and they aren't sure what it is can you help me?

Blisters could be: Drained by the doctor and dried out. Sometimes, if not fungal topical steroids are tried. Did the doctor offer you any treatment? If no response to above, a biopsy could always be considered. There are times that vesicular rashes could be caused by virus as well like a shingles on the foot.
