Some inflammatory swelling.

Detailed Answer:


I thank you for posting your query here and I am definitely going to help you out..

Please note..

1. After reading your history, I feel it's an inflammatory swelling.

2. Blister is secondary to the inflammation present.

3. But, once you see a blister kindly do not wait, better to consult a surgeon electively.

4. We will know what exactly it is after surgeon consultation.

Hope this helps you..

Take care.
