Conditions with symptom: 'blistering'
I think I have this but was wondering if external blistering which seems to come and go frequently is linked. Also my lymph nodes in my groin area seem to swell slightly and are painful to touch, usually only on one side at a time? Thanks for any help x
Hi Caroline, this sounds like Herpes Simplex Virus, you should go to your doctors when the symptoms come back. Try not to worry. Hope this helps x
I get coldsores regularly and have done for about 20 years. However the last few that I have had have made me feel really poorly. I have absolutely no energy and my glands are very sore. The coldsore appears (with the usual tingling, blistering, greasy skin) then a day or so later the fatigue kicks in. Is this a common associated symptom? I have never had this previously and Im having to take time off work! I am a 34 year old female.

Hi For the past 2 years I've been getting these very sore boil like lumps around my privet area and round my upper thighs They scar each time they appear and I can't walk properly when there there Right now I have some blistering on the underneath of my privet area where Yh bottom of my knickers would be But I haven't wore any underwear yesterday or today so why have I got this rather annoying painful blisters? Please help me
When u get one boil be careful and use diluted detol liquid to wash the area and use antibacterial soap when washing your body as they spread or reoccur easily. Tea tree oil is good if not in virginal, and a course of antibiotics if it's trouble some.we had boils in my house now no more general cleaning with detol spray and freshener before u leave your house. To kill the bacteria. Good luck
Hi I've had what I believe is a fungal infection on my feet for quite some time now. I've tried steroid cream and antibiotics (prescription) but the infection keeps coming back. I just don't know what to do now, I've been back to my gp twice and they can't understand why it's returning all the time. It's really getting my down and it's quite painful at times, feels like my feet are on fire when the blistering first appear, they get pretty big too. I'm not sure if popping them is such a good idea but they get that painful I sometimes have to.
Im a gay male who's had his fair share of contact with semen in his lifetime. However recently I've begun to notice that my own semen seems to cause a reddening/soreness wherever it comes into contact with me. Its only mine (noone elses does this) and my semen doesn't seem to affect partners, only me. The last several months Ive found that if I dont wash the semen off anywhere ive come into contact with it immediately after sex, the places on my skin (or penis) which its been in contact with reacts like burnt skin, on one occasion even blistering. Is it possible to be allergic only to your own semen? and only have this develop in later life? (PS. regular sexual health screenings found no STI's though all this in case you wondered).
Of course it is. There are ointments that an be prescribed to you to help with an outbreak if you're unable to clean it off quickly enough.
I am 14 years old, and my earliest memory of having this "problem" was when I was 9. I have an extremely enlarged inner and outer labia. My outer labia is about 7-8cm making daily life extremely uncomfortable. I cannot wear trousers, or leggings, any form of tight clothing and some days I find it hard to even wear underwear, because of the friction that is caused.Some of the problems having an enlarged labia has caused me are: -Pain -Discomfort -Blistering -Broken skin -Infection -Discharge -"Weeping" from cuts -Swelling (sometimes swelling to over three times the original size) -tearing -embarrassment And many other problems. As you can see, this has made a massive impact on my life. I am still a virgin, but I dread to think what sexual intercourse would be, when I currently find it hard to insert tampons, without a burning sensation on the sensitive labias. Everyday life, and moving is uncomfortable, painful and embarrassing. Some days I find it hard to sit down because they catch in my clothes and/or underwear, and other days the chaffing that is caused is almost unbearable. I have done extensive research and feel that even though there are no immediate health impacts, it is causing mental and physical pain. I am unsure what to do, as this is no longer something I can ignore, and am wondering if surgery would be available? Whether its on the NHS or private? I need help as it is getting worse, and I feel this is something I can no longer keep to myself.
