What would cause small water blisters on my legs? They appear

Resolved Question:

What would cause small water blisters on my legs? They appear from time to time about 3 to 4 inches above the front of my ankles. When I gently press on the water blister, water seeps out....then I gently apply neosporyn.

This is most likely a mild form of eczema, which appears like blisters in the extremities.

It does not necessarily need any treatment.

This can also be a very early sign of venous stasis...when the veins in the legs do not return blood fast enough.

Treatment for this would be walking, compression stockings, and weight loss if indicated.

I would show these to your doc, and discuss the possibility of an ultrasound of the legs.
good luck
