Suggest remedy fir blisters in face and penis shaft when suffering from contact dermatitis

default
Posted on Mon, 18 May 2015
Question: I recently caught contact dermatitis from an untreated fragrance allergic reaction. My skin is healing but I still have some red raw skin patches on my torso and around my face. However, I just recently discovered a blister on my penis shaft. A water-like blister that popped instantly. It may have been caused by masturbation of the area where one of the "red raw" skin patches occured because of my dermatitis. Im currently treating the dermatitis with prescribed steroids but I'm not exactly sure what to expect with this blister. I havent been sexually active in a few months.Help?

Thank you for the quick response doctor. Here is the blister a day after its popped. The steroids are actually oral. Do you recommend I apply cortisone cream to the area?
