Doctor insights on:
Recurring Skin Blisters
Skin blister: Skin blister = vesicle = a fluid filled lesion on the outermost layer of tissue covering the body.
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.See 1 more doctor answer
Dyshidrosis: This is a common condition of the hands which was thought to be due to the hands being moist leading to small blisters on the sides of the fingers and ultimately resolving for awhile with dry skin. It is thought now to be related to contact dermatitis which should be ruled out by your dermatologist.
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.See 1 more doctor answer

Repositioning: Try another hold or position for baby. You should be able to avoid blistering. Consider seeing your Obstetrician in case the blister represents infection.
It can: Radiotherapy can cause skin redness, hair loss, and in some situations ulcerations and blistering. These skin changes only occur in the region of the body being treated, and they typically progress during the course of radiotherapy and gradually improve in the weeks after treatment. Depending on the location and type of treatment, these side effects may be unlikely or expected.See 1 more doctor answer
I'm 20, had about 3 bad sunburns as a kid. No blistering, just red and very painful to move. Skin peeled. Can I reverse the damage? I'm very concerned
Skin exams: You certainly should make it a practice to use sun screen now. Also do monthly skin exams to look for changes in your skin, this involves a full length mirror and hand mirrors. Any changes should be checked out by your doctor. You are wise to start now. I had a first cousin die in his early 40s from a melanoma. He spent his early years in Fiji getting lots of sun.
Sunburn: Yes you should be worried and you must go to the nearest Emergency facility to begin to help you control the blistering. Won't get better overnight but will get better over time. Don't forget to put cream on when you are in the sun.
Moisturizer: Use a lot of moisturizer. Aveeno (oatmeal) is a good brand to use. The concern is that blisters should have appeared earlier and usually with only a little sun burn you do not get blisters. There is a possibility that you have some other condition causing blisters. In that case you will need to see a dermatologist or a family physician to get proper diagnosis and treatment.
Help!! Severe sunburn, bubbly blistering skin, severe painful itching to the point of tears, have high pain tolerance home remedies not working?
Skin underneath a ring was red, itchy. Last week or so it became blistering, painful, peeling. Getting worse. What could it be?
Dermatitis: Rashes under rings can be due to metal allergy (contact dermatitis), or an irritant effect from soaps trapped under the ring if not removed when doing dishes without gloves. Both causes can get secondarily infected, with germs, or yeast, giving much redness and tenderness. Remove the ring before dishwashing and get appropriate cream from a dermatologist.
