Welcome to just answer...
Can you please tell me what is your age?
Also do you have fever?
Bleeding form any site?
I am 75. On July 7 I will be 76.
No fever. My sublingual temp is around 97.6 degreexs farenheit
Nose pollups may be emitting and I have started to have some blood from a scar inside my right nostril from it being squashed in hospital from an ill fitting facemask delivering high pressure oxygen.
Can you please describe the blood blisters in a bit detail?
Are these present more on your abdomen?
The large blisters are generally about a dime or nickel in size and oval or round in shape and some are streeks. On first appearance the center is filled with blood in a soft mound. Later as the blister is metabolized, the center flattens out and white dots appear in the body under the skin. I suspect these are hair follicles.
The blisters are confined to both forearms
Well I think these blisters are not due to sepsis...
Neither do these form due to a low platelet count because 90 is a good platelet count and it doe not usually cause blleding at this level
However I think that this is a skin related disorder that might have developed due to a skin reaction to something that might have been used during your stay at ICU...
This can be anything ranging from a simple plaster to antiseptic powders that might have been used
In short I think it is a skin problem that needs to be addressed
So in my opinion you should see a dermatologist for further help in this regard...
I hope this information helps you...
Do you have any further queries?
