My sister is getting wide spread blisters on the top

My sister is getting wide spread blisters on the top of her hands and feet (not the palms or bottom of feet). The blisters pop on their own and leave behind extremely slow healing sores. There are no rings around the blisters or sores, no recent medication changes, no allergies she has come in contact with, and no new stressors in hher life. She has been tested for anything infectious (like Mersa), and other tests to make sure there are no allergies, medication problems, or anything like scabies or shingles. What could it possibly be?

i have a blister on my left elbow and got it around 4 days ago. it started off being a simple clear blister about 1/4 inch wide and it burned. im not sure how it formed it might have been the sun or it could have been scraped one too many times. it has been getting bigger since then and a couple days ago i was waking up and it would burn because the top layer of my skin was scraping back from my rough sleeping area. well today the skin has stopped expanding the blister because i have switched areas and the sheets of my bed had dry spots on them probably from the water that was around the blister. i put a new band-aid on and have been cleaning the blister for lack of a better term conservative amount of times. there was more water growing around it today and just about an hour ago i had consulted my friend who has completed a college cna course which she took about two years in. when i had showed her the blister with the bandaid off and the water broke through without me touching it. Though today i started to grow small itchy bumps on the same arm and one of my friends had the same thing happen to him about a week ago but he didnt have a blister just a lot of bumps on his arm and he has recovered since. What do you think i should do

My toddler has blister like things, as I do not know what to name them at this point. I have taken him to Emergencey room (pediatric) side at UTMB in Galveston, TX & was told he has hand foot and mouth disease. I can see why this conclusion was made. He had thrown up 1x day prior, had a fever that evening too & the bumps were located on palms of hands, soles of feet, and mostly on the toes, top of toes and end of toes, forming a clear- white blistering appearance with some much larger than others. He is having a rough time. I believe he is in pain and am absolutely certain of the severe itching he is experiencing. He was so angry that he began running around the house throwing his toys and hitting me. I made sure he was safe and reassured him this would pass and rang the dr again, questioning the hand foot mouth diagnosis. I was reassured this was what we were dealing with. I again questioned it later on during same day and again was told the same thing. Well- now 2 days later I am seeing these bumbs spread to legs tummy with the feet worsening. His mouth has a few flat red spots that may have ruptured, but do not know if a small blister was ever there, if there was it was overnight and I didn t see it. I keep thinking it is something other than hand foot and mouth, and then I go back to the vomiting fever and listlessness with the areas which this rash began- the feet hands and outside of mouth- none inside although. So it fits, all except the relentless itching. I just do not know what to do! I do not want to wait if it is not what I was told, especially with my son being miserable. I do not want to wait it out only to realize, oh it may be something different as this is only getting worse. I feel helpless and I do not want to be a disservice to my son by not trying any and everything until we figure it out, but also do not want to be a crazy lady if I am being impatient. Thanks in advance!

I have a blister-like growth on my thumb. Thought it was part of the arthritic decline in my hands, (I m 73!) but it seems to be something else. it s only painful when pressed firmly. The blister-like part, which is an inch wide and an inch and a half long, seems to emanate from a tiny, slightly darker bump at the top. Noticed it about two months ago and have been just hoping it would resolve on it s own as it seems to be causing no problems other than cosmetic. Any thoughts on what this might be? If I need to see a doc, should it be my internist or my dermatologist?
