Brief Answer:
Seems to be autoimmune blistering disease, go for skin biopsy

Detailed Answer:
According to your complaints you seem to have developed some autoimmune blistering disease of the skin like pemphigus vulgaris, Pemphigoid or linear IgA disease.
I would recommend you to consult a dermatologist and go for a skin biopsy.
This will confirm the diagnosis so that treatment can be started accordingly.
