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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
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! ...Read more

I have stretchmarks on my inner thigh and 2 have blister like sores on the inside of them they don't itch just hurt what can I do to relieve the pain?
Friction: Within stretch marks the skin is thinned, and thus more fragile. Your inner thighs are rubbing against each other when you walk or run, creating friction which in turn causes the blisters & sores. You need to minimize that friction. Lose weight (if necessary), and buy one of those friction-reducing creams that sporting goods stores sell. Also, keep the sores covered with bandaids until they heal. ...Read more

I saw a small blister on my inner thigh during the weekend, I have been keeping a band aid on it but more skin comes off after the band aid is off.
Maceration: Dead skin which is occluded beneath a bandage will stay moist and easily peel off when the bandage is removed. In some cases keeping a wound moist is beneficial, such as with an abscess. Options for avoiding this recurrent moisture problem include leaving the wound open to air when not engaged in activities that increase risk of infection, or using non-adherent type bandages. ...Read more
