My four year old woke up with a clear blister on her wrist what is it?

Hard to say: There are several possible causes. She could have rubbed it against the bed or had it pressed against a hard object during her sleep. She could have an insect bite of some sort. It could be the beginning of an infection such as chicken pox or coxsackie. Clean it with clear water and apply an antibiotic ointment. Watch for signs of infection or spreading.

I have recurring small "bites", blisters, on back of hands and wrists.  I sometimes see hard black specks.?

Need more info: Blisters on the backs of hands could be insect bites of some sort, but autoimmune blistering diseases like bullous pemphigoid can also do this. A more rare condition called porphyria cutanea tarda also often has blisters on the backs of the hands as the main issue, and a related disease called "pseudoporphyria" can also do this. A dermatologist will probably perform a biopsy to get some answers. ...Read more

Blisters: A blister that forms as part of a skin rash may be tiny, as small as the head of a pin, or much larger, up to one-half inch wide. Blisters associated with a skin rash are typically circular-shaped and filled with a serous fluid that may leak out, forming a yellow crust. Causes include bacteria, viruses, and allergic reactions.
