Hi dear,
Its probably candidiasis ,a kind of fungal infection.
Is it itchy?
Is it painful?

Better show it to a dermatologist for correct diagnosis and treatment ,
till then apply fucidin powder to it.
Take care.

Hi, the blisters are most probably due to secondary bacterial infection of the base of the shaved hair follicles in the lower abdomen. Application of any antibacterial cream like soframycetin 3 to 4 times a day will resolve the problem.
