    Hi! I had this problem, I had painful clusters of fluid filled blisters which I would pop to get rid of them. Also, the skin between my fingers would easily split n ooze stuff...I had it for years and nothing worked. My mom suggested I soak my feet in vinegar. I was like, aw heck let's do it. Yes it stings but it was definitely worth it. It took 5 days of soaking for at least half an hour with vinegar you buy at the store...I've been 3 years blister free! Try it!

    I have recently acquired an increasing number of itchy raised blister-type spots on my arms. It started as one (which was what my mother always called a beauty spot)that I scratched one day and now i have several on both arms. I don't realise I have them until they itch and I scratch and break the skin. As with a blister it is filled with fluid and once the fluid is released it leaves a small hole in my arms.I suffer with poor mental health and have classic signs of SPD and so am finding it impossible to leave them alone as they are trying to heal. I also have rosacea which is not under control...could it be related? Any help you could offer would be gratefully received .

    My husband has this mysterious foot condition that 2 GP's and a skin professional cannot identify. it starts as several small blisters appear on the sole of one foot (it doesn't spread), they become very pressurised as they grow and they are filled with clear fluid even though it looks yellow (if you prick it with a needle it refills quickly), then within a week or so the fluid disappears and the blistered skin becomes dry and grey/mouldy in colour, like a scab, and eventually will fall off. Only to reappear after a month or so. Does anyone else had anything similar sounding???

    I have three large blisters surrounded by a red area on the outside of the top of my right buttock. I often get blisters sores on my chin with pain under my chin, that ooze fluid and crust. I have had blisters between my buttocks before on the right buttock, but lower down. These blisters that have appeared now are the biggest, and are tender but not sore as such. I have had them three days now. I would appreciate if you think they are impetigo or herpes. Any ideas please.

    Hi, I am a 34 year old faithful married man. In the last 3/4 months after sex I have had a problem under my foreskin. I don't experience any pain or itching but I appears the the skin has weakened because I have large blisters all around the shaft the blisters either have blood in them or clear fluid. When the blisters burst it then takes a couple of weeks to heal and can be a smelly process. When I showed my doctor he gave me Caneston and said the blisters were just trauma but it happens every time after sex.

    YOU HAVE BALANITIS! Balanitis presents itself in many forms but most commonly starts out as you are experiencing it right now. What you are describing in this post are the outward symptoms of a skin disorder which is called Balanitis. This skin dis-order effects the foreskin and penile head. I have come to believe that the actual cause (dis-ease) behind these outward symptoms is an internal infection of the seminal gland which causes a change in the PH balance of your seminal discharge. A healthy natural PH level is more an alkaline state which changes to a very acidic state. This acidic PH level of your seminal fluid is literally burning your inner foreskin and your head. So far I found no documented medical testing underway or done in this area to back up this theory as of yet. What I have found working this theory, I have cured myself and many others following what I have done are no longer suffering from Balanitis. Proof enough for me! You will find over time, left unchecked or taking/trying the different prescription/creams doctors (unknowingly) will hand out, will only cause more discomfort and pain over the long term. That these symptoms can and will be worse first thing in the morning (from nightly seminal discharge) and or after any sort of ejaculation. If untreated properly! It can go as far you not being able to pull your foreskin back at all without causing great PAIN and things can even get worse then that. This can be treated correctly and cured naturally. I suffered for 8 long years with the same things you are going through right now and much worse. I read stories like yours almost weekly and there is really no need for this suffering. I put this all together and launched a web site three years ago to share my store and help guys like you out. Check it out and you decide if it is for you. http://balanitisgone.com

    I am 28, and for years, every now and then I get, the only way I can describe them are blisters on my feet, toes, heels and ankles. They are filled with a liquid, then when the go they leave the skin dry and peeling, quite considerably. They are not blisters through walking or rubbing, They are painless, I just wondered what they were. Many Thanks

    Hi, i'm a 18 year old male and I have two small blisters on the side of my penis, one on the edge of the head and the other just below. I'm actually unsure if they are blisters or not but it looks like it filled with liquid. They are painless but one them feels sorta hard. I was wondering if someone can give me some insight into this because I'm quite worried about it. Also I haven't had sex so it rules out a STD.

    My brother uas acctually had this problem once. This i know can be caused by masterbation. Just take a hot pin and pop them, cleaning out all of the fluids and they should heal up. I would go and see your gp/ practice nurse about it first. But poping them worked for my brother

    I would definitely not pop a pin in it, that might cause it to become infected. See your doctor to be on the safe side.

    I am 20 years old and I suffer from swet hands arms and feet. I have suffered from this is since about 12 and I always go to my doctors about it but there never seem to do out about it I am really embraced about it. I would love just to be able to wear a pair of flip flops in summer lol.

    Ive suffered with lichen planus for several years on my legs but for the passed year my face has now started to swell up at random times especially my eyes which close up and fluid fills the underneaths of the eyes. Ive been told this is due to scratching the lichen on my legs but I know i havent scratched lately and they are not filled with fluid like they normally are. I end up in casualty on a steroid drip then a course of steriod pills, it also swells my neck up and a rash appears on my neck. Any clues??? John 61

    Yes, chances are it is possible it can be transmitted. Why be embarrassed, doctors see everything, and if you care about yourpartner you will abstain and get to the GP (general practioner). Are the bumps filled with any fluid? Like a blister?

    I have this same problem. Both of my breasts are covered in obvious pores that are filled with white fluid when squeezed. Like you it has also become a habit to squeeze them which can cause scars. What causes them? Is there a way to clear them please?

    I have the same thing! I'm pretty sure it's just pores filled with tiny amounts of fluid( exactly like a zit). I started using ocean salt exfoliator and it helped. Also I stopped picking it.

    Hi, Everytime i have sex with my partner it is really uncoumftable and feels abit like friction burn. Afterwards my vigina seems to become red and sore and very inflamed, i also get water filled blisters around the bikini line, and the outer lips, is this impatigo or something else?

    It very likely is impatigo caused by friction but if this is a recurring thing you may want to have a doctor check it out. Also, the fact that it feels like friction may be because you are not secreting enough vaginal fluids to ease the way. Fear of the friction burn from past performance may just exacerbate your situation causing you to be tense and dry the next time. Try to do four play to relax and also try a non-oil based lubricant because oil dissolves condoms and cause them to break easy. Plenty of lube should ease the way. Also, experiment with different sexual positions and do not be afraid to ask him to go slow when having intercourse so you can see if you get the same results.

    This doesn't sound like impetigo, this may be herpes as cold sores (herpes virus) and impetigo can be similar in appearance to an untrained eye. Do the blisters have a honey/yellowy crust? If they do it may well be impetigo. If I was in your shoes I would visit the GPs or local GUM clinic

    I feel very embarrassed, but I get a pain in my right testicle, sometimes it is a short sharp pain or sometimes it feels like a strain in the lower abdomen. I try to ezamin myself by its so sensitive, I don't feel any lumps but I can feel the tubes and it makes me nauseous. I had two ultrasounds, the first time around 11 years ago where I got the all clear. Then the second time around 2years ago I now have a cyst and a fluid filled type of bubble on my right testicle. The hospital Dr said it is perfectly normal but the every now and then the pain comes back. I am at the stage now where I want the fluid drained but I am not sure if this is a wise move. Please advice me what I should do.. My age is 35.

    From what you're describing, it sounds like the form of eczema I have. It's called Dyshidrosis. It is an awful condition so I am extremely empathetic. The best thing to do is see your GP as topical steroids is the main treatment. You will also need a good moisturiser like Emulsifying Ointment. I find bathing my hand in a bowl of salted water great for relieving the itching as it dries out the blisters. It may also be beneficial to avoid dairy to see if you find any relief . Some say a nickel allergy or sensitivity plays a huge part so try avoid oats, chocolate and canned foods. The most important thing is to seek professional advice before you do anything. Good luck!

    I had my 3rd child nearly 6yrs ago, breast fed as long as I could, which I did for all my children, but if, when having a bath say, I wash my breasts, I can squeeze a few blisters of milky yellowish fluid from my nipples, more on one side than the other. I am worried. Is this normal??
