I have one blister that's formed on my lower inner thigh. I shaved my legs yesterday but I don't ever recall getting a blister before. Could this be herpes? I do not have any other symptoms but worried this could be a symptom. I know you can't tell me any

Exam needed: Herpes infection is usually associated with pain and and/or itching, but it is possible that a blister appearing in an area without trauma could signal the early stages of herpes. An examination can help sort this out.

How long do prodromal symtpoms of herpes first outbreak lastburning/tingling in thigh vagina anus abdomen x 9 days. Is herpes? Will blisters happen?

I would go: In. The distribution of pain is wide fore genital herpes. The prodrome in a first episode is usually a viral type illness, then breakout. One would expect lesions after 9 days but it can be tricky in that there are times when it causes pain without blisters. If that is what u have I would b suprised? Gd luck.

Symptoms : very itchy anus, vaginal odour+itch+burning sensation, watery white sometimes yellow discharge, inner thigh itchy rash and small blisters?

Yeast: This sounds like a bad yeast infection with regard to the itching and watery / white discharge. Given the presence of actual blisters and odor, there might be additional infections that need to be evaluated in person with an exam.

Rash: Difficult to say without seeing them but the fact they are so itchy makes me think of hives or bites. Send a picture if you can. Keep them clean and use an antihistamine. All the best.

My duahgter just spilled very hot soup on her lap, and now has a quarter sized blister on her thigh... Should I take her to an e.R. Or is there something I can use at home to make it feel a little better?

Simple is best: A blister is when the body reacts to trauma (burn, friction, etc) by creating a water filled cushion to protect the area. This is natural response and should be protected with a simple dressing. Change it every other day and as needed. Gentle cleansing. Because the skin is intact, risk of infection is zero. If it pops, cover with a simple dressing to protect underlying tissues. It will heal fine.

I am suffering from vitiligo and a few days ago I woke up with a blister on my outer upper thigh. Could vitiligo be the culprit?

Not related.: If the blister is small and short-lived, don't worry over it. If it becomes painful and more generalized, consult you doctor asap. It is not directly related to vitiligo.

I have a burnt blister on my thigh and it looks like a bubble can I pop it so I can wear pants and cover it with a bandage?

Yes: Then wash it. The shower will work. Wash before you pop it. A needle can be cleaned with water & alcohol. Use a bandage which will not get glued to it. As it heals you can soon go without any bandage. Avoid bacitracin, neosporin triple-antibiotic as these are useless & may be harmful. You can lubricate it with vaseline or aquaphor.

I have a weird bump, that is soft. It's not quite a blister but it hurts a little when I push down on it. It is on my inner thigh?

I have a weird bump, that is soft. It's not quite a blister but it hurts a little when I push down on it. It is on my inner thigh?

Thigh Bump: Without seeing the lesion it is impossible to make a correct diagnosis. But this could be a neurofibroma. Neurofibromas are benign nerve sheath tumors. They arise from the supportive tissue within the nerve itself. As these tumors grow, they displaced and compress important nerve fascicles within the nerve. This causes pain, weakness, and numbness.

I have a water blister on my thigh.4 days, then turned sort of flat and darkish, and feels hard and rough. It's been 12 days now. Thoughts?

I have a water blister on my thigh.4 days, then turned sort of flat and darkish, and feels hard and rough. It's been 12 days now. Thoughts?

Hard to say: Most blisters flatten and get hard and rough and some darken before the skin falls off, but 12 days is a long time. If it is bothering you at all, you should either get a consult and send a photo to one of us, or see a doc. Meanwhile, no harm in warm compressing. If you put a slightly damp gauze over it and change every 12 hours, pulling off any dead dry skin, it might resolve sooner. Hope so!
