Please dear god, 2 years now! please read

Please help me here people, for the past two years, about once a month, these HHuuuugggeee water blister apear on my toes (SAME PLACE, SAME FOOT, SAME KIND OF BLISTERS) clear fluid/water like/semi-textured with a semi-yellow tint comes out when I am forced to pop them cause of the pain, and itching accurs all around the area. Also,they fill back up with fluid for almost 4-5 days and just leak fluid all day soaking my socks and making the skin inbetween the toes white and moist.. and when its all scabbed and healed, its starts all over.. What is this.. I have been to the hospital.. but cannot afford a specialist at the moment.. This has been going on for 2 years.. is it curable.. am I gonna be able to practice ju-jitsu, this is embarrising.. and it can be really painfull.. and when I pop them wrong sometimes, I can see blood form around the area, then I feel sick and get a fever

Re: Please dear god, 2 years now! please read

You may have a primary skin blistering disease such as pemphigus or bullous pemphigoid. The fact that it's been recurring is suggestive of this. Some infectious--like Streptococcus--can cause a blistering eruption as well. Being on the foot is a common place for this to happen in young people. Have you ever had any of that fluid cultured?

I have had a few of them, but they couldnt pinpoint one bacteria on the culture becuase there was so many.. At first, it can back as MRSA, but they say it doesnt come back as MRSA anymore.. It gets better when I use bactrim ointmen (municiprin).. but it always , alwaysa comes back, same foot, same blisters, same everything...


Have I ever had a culture

Re: Please dear god, 2 years now! please read

You can't look at your blisters and then compare them to a picture. The diagnosis of a primary blistering skin disease is made by taking a biopsy of the area and examining it histopathologically (i.e. under a microscope). Clinically (i.e. by your story) you're having recurring blisters in one area. There are not a lot of things that can do this. No one on the internet whether by hearing your story or by looking at pictures will be able to diagnose what you have. You need to see a skin specialist or at least an internist and have a biopsy taken
