Blistering: Area turned hard, yellowish, & itchy after popped blister on foot: answer: could be cellulitis.Normally would want to drain blister instead of popping it.

Needs to be seen: A rash on the hands could be the sign of something serious -but a full history and examination is necessary to determine that. If you had a photo you could show us on Health Tap, that would help tremendously. Also whether that was the palms or the back of the hands would help narrow down some of the possibilities.

Had a large blister on the bottom of my foot and popped it. It now has a red ring around it, the skin is really hard. It is itchy. Is it infected?

Possible: It's possibly infected with fungus or yeast. It's probably not a bacterial infection from your description. Apply topical lortisome (antifungal cream with hydrocortisone) and bandaid for one week. If skin feels worse or appears like its spreading, see a doctor. Hope that helps. ...Read more

Four things now!: 1. Stop the Amoxicillin immediately. 2. Take some OTC Benedryl as directions unless you can't for any reason. 3. Call you doctor for advice. 4. If your symptoms get worse or you have trouble breathing or swallowing, have someone take you to ER immediately. ...Read more
