No itching or redness, actually was not aware until removed shirt. No known allergies, pain in shoulders and knees 40yo male lived active athletic and extreme sports
Expert:  Vakul Aren replied 1 year ago.
Thank you for the information.Clear fluid blisters if small may be secondary to Herpes/Shingles if they are along the path of a nerve,.Pemphigoid blisters are thin walled and coin shaped in size,there may be no itching in them.Severe allergy or inflammation due to connective tissue disorders may also have large blisters.Small blisters are usually due to a allergic reaction, use of Claritin and phenargan orally and Calamine lotion locally may help till you can see your PCP/GP.If they persist despite therapy you may need to see a Dermatologist

Can you provide a photograph of the blisters?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No prior occurrence about 1/8" dia.
If linear is necessary pleaser define?
Expert:  Vakul Aren replied 1 year ago.
Along a line would be linear,basically herpes is a viral infection occuring on the outer part of nerves leading to clear blisters.Ideally you need to be examined by a doctor/dermatologist who can examine and treat you.
Expert:  Vakul Aren replied 1 year ago.
rarely chemicals and medicines may cause such blisters if there is a allergic reaction.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
They are not linear they are imagine a shotgun blast with hundreds of little bkisters
Expert:  Vakul Aren replied 1 year ago.
Contact Dermatitis,Insect bites and occasionally contact with nickel plated objects may give rise to this kind of allergic blisters.Food allergies may also cause such blisters.Use of antiallergic drugs like Claritin(loratidine) and phenargan orally will help till you can see your doctor.use of oral steroids like prednisolone for a short period,3-5 days will also help.The dermatitis may also be caused by a change in the detergent used for washing.
