Lower Thigh Blister
I have one blister that's formed on my lower inner thigh. I shaved my legs yesterday but I don't ever recall getting a blister before. Could this be herpes? I do not have any other symptoms but worried this could be a symptom. I know you can't tell me any
My duahgter just spilled very hot soup on her lap, and now has a quarter sized blister on her thigh... Should i take her to an e.R. Or is there something i can use at home to make it feel a little better?
Simple is best: A blister is when the body reacts to trauma (burn, friction, etc) by creating a water filled cushion to protect the area. This is natural response and should be protected with a simple dressing. Change it every other day and as needed. Gentle cleansing. Because the skin is intact, risk of infection is zero.
