Can HSV 1or2 travel without contact or is it shingles? Shin has itchy blisters with shinbone/leg/groin pain/fatigue. Have had HSV forever.
See answer: If you have orofacial or genital herpes (hsv-1/hsv-2), you cannot transmit the infection to another part of your body after initial infection occurs. That said, with genital herpes, one has infection of the l-4, l-5, and s-1 nerve roots which innervate the rectal area, buttocks and lateral aspect of the thigh and so outbreaks can occur in those areas. Shingles can affect any area of the body. Read more

Blistering rash: Blisters with redness and itch can signify a contact dermatitis such as poison ivy or oak or sumac if indeed you have had exposure to weeds or vines outdoors. I would suggest white vinegar soaks and apply Hydrocortisone cream 2-3x/day. If the condition worsens, please see a dermatologist. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I burnt my bare leg with a curling iron, 4 days later, blister popped and it's green in colour, what should I do?
My leg has a fungus on it and what the dr gave me doesn't touch it. It's hot prickly blisters that itch like mad sometimes. What can I put on it?
Keep using the cream: Keep using the cream, probably twice a day. I imagine that it is just itching madly as there is a war going on in you skin and that fungus doesn't want to leave. Get pramasone at any local pharmacy and store it in the refrigerator. Use it 5-6 times a day in between your anti fungal cream to get the itch temporarily under control. If this isn't improving in 2-4 weeks, get rechecked. Read more

My son has tiny little bumps on his leg. Some in a row, others scattered. They almost look like they could be blisters? They've been there for awhile.
I had a blister on my leg and it has now gone down and developed a red ring around it. What could it be? Should I be concerned? Is it from an insect?
I have a newly formed freckle on my leg and it started out as a blister and I popped it thinking it was from the sun and now I'm concerned...
Possibly infectious: If the area is painful and/or there was pain in the area before the blisters appeared it could be shingles. They usually are pretty localized and the blisters will crust over. If it is recognized early there are medicines to take but even without treatment will usually resolve on its own but may leave residual pain at site. Your primary is the best place to go to be evaluated. Read more
