Can you clarify whether the blisters you describe are solid or have fluid in them? If so what colour fluid? Is it possible for you to upload a picture?
The biggers blisters do seem to be filling with clear fluid. Some popped accidentally as I touched them and I could feel some liquid. Some have popped on their own and are now forming small scabs. I'll try to take a picture and see how to upload it.
I'm attaching 3 photos. Face, a close up of the left hand and the chest.
Generally, no. I can see one or two blisters centered on chest hair. But there are others that don't seem to be near any hair.
Some more info: I can feel bumps on my scalp. I think these exist below my hair, as well.
I have been having such red blisters off and on for many years. However, I typically just got one at a time and didn't think much of it. This is the first time that I've had such an outbreak.
As you can probably tell from the picture, I had significant problems with acne in my teens and beyond. Even now, I use a salicylic acid face wash to control acne.
Hope this helps.
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX It's good to know it isn't contagious. I've been avoiding going out, in case it was. I'll get Calamine lotion right away.
Some of them have popped and seem to be exposing lower layer of skin. Is there risk of infection? Anything I should do about that?
Will there be scars? Anything I can do to minimize them?
Any suggestions for prevention? I guess this happened because I'm inherently prone to acne. I've had such blisters / acne on my chest, thighs, etc. in the past, but typically just one or two at a time.
