Rashes on back, arms, legs, ankles, watery blisters, pops on scratching. Cure?

I have a rash all over my back mainly. Arms a few on my legs one on my ankle. they are all round very irritating . They start off as small water blisters which burst on scratching due to the irritation then turn into a crusty circle, that increase in size slowly. When the crust is scratched off it weeps a clear fluid. Which eventually crust over again.

Hope you are doing great.

You must consult a dermatologist who would be in a better position to diagnose and treat you. The history which you have provided is very brief and hence it is very difficult to actually advice you something concrete. But still try to follow the following:
1) Take an antiallergic tablet to control your itching and irritation
2) Apply an antibiotic ointment on the crusted and raw lesions.
3) Keep a diary recordind daily new blisters
4) Maintain good personal hygiene to prevent any secondary infection
5) Use a very mild soap, use lukewarm water for bath, apply a moisturizer after bath
6) Keep your nails cut short
You must visit a dermatologist at the earliest. A biopsy may be needed to rule out autoimmune vesiculobullous disease.

Wish you a happy new year. Get well soon.
