Symptoms: Blisters burning itching missing skin pain

 

 

Doctor: Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor.I understand your concern.Blisters as in your case may form as a result of Stap hylococcal infection known as Bullous impetigo as your doctor told you.Another possibility in your case is Irritant contact dermatitis to something you handled with both your hands. It is characterised by blisters formation followed by eczematous rash.In eczema, I prefer to advise topical steroid like hydrocortisone to my patients.You can share my opinion with your doctor.I hope it helps.Stay healthy
