What is the definition or description of: painful red blister rash?

It is what it is...: There can be multiple causes for a "painful red blister rash"--just as there are many variations for the color "red". Rashes are most difficult to diagnose without actually being seen by your doctor. So, rather than to guess about the diagnosis, you should schedule an appointment with your dermatologist /family doctor. If this is MRSA (methicillin resistent staph aureus), it could prove dangerous. ...Read more

Possibly: Any reaction can occur to any medication is the common mantra that allergists use. Those blistering rashes are not commonly caused by zyrtec (cetirizine), (cetirizine) it is possible. I would think that it is probably something other than zyrtec (cetirizine). ...Read more

1cm scabs that developed from a pimple - 3 on my left thigh, 4 on my bottom and a cluster on my back. Also blister rash developed after scratch healed?

Rash: The main concern is that you have developed a secondary infection; such as staph or strep and you require an antibiotic as part of your treatment. If it is 1 sided and you have a history of chickenpox, it may be herpes zoster. Follow up for further care. All the best. ...Read more

The left side of my face is numb & has 4 marks that look like long thin flat blisters. I also have pain in my jaw. What could this blister/rash be?

Possible herpes: You may be experiencing early herpes zoster (shingles). Tough to tell at this early stage. I recommend 2000 mg of bht (butylated hydroxytoluene) per day, until the lesions resolve (or you find out it is something else). Bht is available over the counter in a health food store. Don't drink alcohol when consuming bht. See the free e-book, wipe out herpes with bht. ...Read more

You: You know the old saying: "if it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and walks like a duck, it is". Varicella zoster, the technical name, results when a person who has had chicken pox has it re-activated later in life. While the rash is usually in the distribution of one nerve root, bilateral cases have been reported but they are rare. The rash of vz is typically a blister the itches and burns. The rash of scabies consists of a very itchy collection of tiny blisters that, in people with good hygeine, may be seen on the spaces between the fingers or on the legs. It lasts until treated. Vz often starts with pain and then a few days later the erruption of blisters that dry up after a week or two. It is really unlikely that you and your girls have two different things. I know of cases where an adult caring for a child with chicken pox had an attack of vz afterwards. Children without immunity to chicken pox can catch them from an adult with vz. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is usually not very helpful. In vz the treatment if caught early may be an antiviral drug. For the pain, Gabapentin or Pregabalin are prescribed. Most doctors suggest the zostavax injection to prevent vz in people over 60 because the incidence of post herpetic neuralgia increases with age.
Good luck! I know what it feels like. ...Read more

I scalded my arm a couple days ago, and now it has popped skin blisters. What should I do now?

I scalded my arm a couple days ago, and now it has popped skin blisters. What should I do now?

Normal reaction: Blistering is a normal consequence of a so-called "second degree" burn. You don't have to do anything special, but if the blisters are large, you can clean a needle with alcohol and nick them to let the fluid out. (this is painless as the blistered skin is dead.) apply wet soaks with warm tap water a couple of times a day, and if you see any sign of infection (firmness, swelling) see your doctor. ...Read more

If my skin blisters from a bee sting, does it mean I'm allergic to bee stings?

If my skin blisters from a bee sting, does it mean I'm allergic to bee stings?

No: Allergic reactions to bee stings are characterized by symptoms away from the site of the sting. If all of the reaction to a sting - blisters, swelling, redness - are all directly connected to the site of the sting, it's a large local reaction. If you get stung on the foot and get hives on your arms, or your throat swells or you start to wheeze - those are allergic reactions. See an allergist. ...Read more
