What can I do for the painful red blisters filled with water all over my lower back from cellulitis?

What can I do for the painful red blisters filled with water all over my lower back from cellulitis?

Depends on cause: If the blisters don't cross the midline, consider shingles (tx: acyclovir). With cellulitis present, if the area of blistering is also very edematous (swollen), then mobilization of fluid from this area (e.g. Diuresis) can also help, along with abx. If the pt looks ill, has a fever, and the blisters are looking more violaceous, then go to the ed- the infection may be getting worse. ...Read more
