In brief: Wrong Diagnosis

Cellulitis/blisters is basically a visible inflammation (itis) of the skin and soft tissues (red, hot, swollen and tender).
It can be caused by many things but recurrent stress herpes is pretty unusual.If you are have repeated episodes of this, get to a wound care or vascular specialist, the diagnoses you have is wrong. There are many other simple treatable causes that this sounds like than herpe.
