Hello,

Thanks for your question.

There are few possibilities:

1. Fungal infection or yeast infection---commonest cause

2. Bacterial infection

3. Allergic reaction

4. Herpes virus usually causes blisters.

Fungal & bacterial infection are more likely which can be treated after clinical evaluation.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
