Brief Answer:
Picture of lesion will be helpful

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have gone through your query.
Based upon your history and symptoms of the lesion, it is more likely a local reaction to some bite or anything else.

Since it has been 8 days and you burst the blister, there can be chance of infection.
Yes for now, you have to clean or dress it daily with betadine ointment. You can apply clindamycin ointment over it. If itch has subsided then no need of taking anti-histaminics.
A picture of the lesion is needed to help you more with it like further treatment or management. You can upload it with follow- up query.

age-28,ht-5ft 5,wt-55,
I am smoking for last 2 years . I usually smoke at-most 10 cigrate in a day but not a regular smoker.
From last 7 days I felt pain on my right side of my throat. I consulted a ENT specialist yesterday and asked her is it symptoms of throat cancer,she said it is the reversible stage of cancer and prescribed only Betadine Gagelling without other medicine . Is it really cancer symptom? I think it is only due to throat infection,am I right?

Hi I'm 28 and 16 weeks pregnant and its my first baby. I usually get constipated very easily and in pregnancy it has worsen. I'm using Isphagul (pure psyllium husk) mixed in water and now i'm having a bowel movement every alternative day. That's some how fine, but now I have a severe pain while passing stools and sometimes it bleeds. Its painful for the next 3 to 4 hours and then the pain disappears but the pain is too much and I cant bear. Hence I started using Xyloproct and Betadine ointments in that affected area. Is it good to use these ointments during pregnancy? If not please suggest some alternative and help.

Hi a few weeks ago the outside of my vagina was really itchy, so I scratched it and then I noticed there was some blood. So I thought I burst a spot or something. Now that area looks like a blister but without the bubble on top it’s the same...
