Keep clean...: The burn will heal with time. Given age of 75, I'm curious if any medical conditions exist that would impair healing? See local doc to determine if rx antibiotic cream is needed. Your husband should keep the area clean (gentle soap and water) and avoid tight clothes that will likely irritate the area and be painful to him. Avoid picking at the blisters as that increases chance for infection. ...Read more

Cherry angiomas: Relax and ignore them. If you don't like them a dermatologist can erase them with electrodessication or laser. I prefer electrdessication as it costs nothing. I can charge just a routine office visit. I can treat several every minute. There his a mild sting and they heal in 1 or 2 weeks, depending on size. Anticoagulation makes no difference. They are collections of capillaries filled with blood. ...Read more

Would need to see.: .. to be certain. There are so many causes of itchy rashes. Given that this has spread all over your body, and looks like little blisters, AND is itchy, you really should contact your doctor, to be evaluated. If this IS actually chicken pox, adult infections can be more severe than childhood chicken pox. So, the sooner it is evaluated, the better. ...Read more
