Painful hip with knee and blisters on the foot may suggestive of cellulitis of that limb. Other possibilities are deep vein thrombosis or septic arthritis.

Keep that limb elevated position and apply moisturizer.

It is an emergency, need Doppler study of that limb and antibiotic treatment accordingly. Please consult your doctor, he/she will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
