How many blisters are there?
Are they on both hands?
Hi. There is only 1 sore on her knuckle. Several tiny blisters are now surrounding the sore.
Is there any blister in the mouth or foot?
the entire issue is smaller than a dime.
no, there had been sores in her mouth and tongue. but they went away.
In viral infection, blister can appear.
You can use neosporin cream to prevent secondary bacterial infection.
Wash your hand after touching the area to prevent spreading of infection.
the blister has become a little bigger in the last day. should I be concerned about that?
If the blister opened up, secondary bacterial infection can develop.
Neosporin cream will help.
They will go away.
but this isn't like a yeast infection?
Yeast infection usually does have symptoms of blisters.
Blisters can appear in allergy, dermatitis, viral infection.
should I also cover the sore with a bandaid?
As she had a viral episode, possibility of viral infection is more.
No, you can cover it with sterile gauze dressing.
okay. anything i should watch for? or amount of time it could take to heal.
It will prevent friction.
When did it appear first?

I hope it will heal within a week.
But if they spread or increase in number, you should consult doctor again.
