Hello,

If I were treating Doctor for this case of I would come up with following possibilities:
* Steven johnson syndrome/ Toxic epidermal necrolysis- it is a serious issue of skin and mucous membrane, occurs due to reaction to any drug. In this such fluid filled blisters, peeling of skin with involvement of eyes and oral cavity. It needs urgent care
* Other possibility is pemphigus vulgaris which is a blistering disorder which is an autoimmune disease and presents with blisters and redness of eye and mucosa involvement. This also needs urgent treatment

I would suggest to please visit a dermatologist and seek urgent care as Steven Johnson syndrome is a serious condition.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Deepti Shukla, Dermatologist
