I was bitten twice in March and since then marks have appeared on my legs that developed blisters that wept but have now cleared up still leaving a red XXXXXXX about the size of a 10p piece. I have then developed blisters on the bottom of my left foot. My doctor put me on anti-biotics which did not clear this up. I get more blisters each day - they do not hurt but I can feel them when I walk. Yesterday, my right foot came out in sores which bled on my toes and joint. My doctor doesn't seem to know what is causing this and has referred me to another doctor who can't see me until the end of the month. It is causing me concern. The marks on my legs are very ichy.

Thanks for writing to us.
from the description provided I could think of few possibilities- it could be a type of eczema or an autoimmune disease known as bullous pemphigoid(BP)
BP presents initially as red itchy urticarial lesions that later on develop blisters.
Eczema may presents as red itchy scaly lesions with tiny blisters.

Both of these conditions can be treated. To help you in a better way, i would need a clear resolution image of the concerned area. I would really appreciate if you could upload a recently clicked image of your concerned lesions.

Hoping to hear from you soon
Take care
