Hard to: Say without seeing them. Need more history. More than likely contact dermatitis, viral origin.

Take pictures and show them to your pcp or upload them here. ...Read more

Go see your doctor for a check and a prescription. One other possibility could be cold sores--usually come, blister, scab then gone in a week. To be sure, see your doctor. ...Read more

1 Dime size, no head pimple/blister between scrotum and anus. 2 weeks. Friction from tennis and sweat? Std!?

Sebaceous cyst?: An STD is a very unlikely cause of this sort of problem. More likely an inflamed (infected?) sebaceous cyst or something similar. See a doctor if it doesn't clear up in another week or so. Or sooner if it continues to enlarge, becomes sore, and ASAP if fever or spreading redness. (Your concern about STD suggests you may be at risk, so get tested to be safe. But not the cause of this problem.) ...Read more

No: Allergy is not contagious. Even if the friend's symptoms were not allergy, the symptoms do appear to be of a contagious nature.

See a dermatologist: There is no credible evidence that any specific diet will help acne, although large quantities of dairy products and foods containing iodine will sometimes make acne worse. But if you have acne and blisters, that is unusual. I would strongly suggest that you see a dermatologist and find out what is going on. ...Read more
