Suggest a remedy for blisters like rashes on face

hi, I have a rash on my neck and chest that is spreading on my face. It started off small, and now it is spreading. It has been four days. Now it looks like blisters. I also have a small lump behind my ear. The rashes itch and hurt. I took benadryl for a few days and it is not helping.

HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

It is possible that you may have chicken pox if you do not have a history of previous infection.

This is a common cause of a painful and itching rash.

The rash would need to be seen by your doctor to be definitively diagnosed.

If it is chicken pox then the treatment is mainly symptomatic eg medication for the itching and discomfort.
This means the anti histamine can be continued, you can add calamine lotion to this to help.

I hope this helps
