Detailed Answer:
Hello ma'am and welcome.

Thank you for writing to us.

I have gone through your query with diligence and would like you to know that I am here to help. The fact that they are spreading (Especially after popping) leads to me suspect a few conditions, but please do note sir, that I would be most comfortable if you could get into visiting a dermatologist as he/she would be able to make a more accurate diagnosis and also help initiate treatment at the earliest. But here are a few conditions I am suspecting:

+Allergic reaction (e.g. chemical, certain plants in your garden or elsewhere, cosmetic products, gloves, rubber, etc.)
+Plantar postulosis
+Shingles (to be ruled out)
and a few others.

Please do find time to visit your doctor at the earliest. He/she may initiate a course of steroids to help suppress the appearance of these blisters. I hope you find my response helpful. Please do not hesitate to write to me about anything, I am always here to help.

Best wishes.
