Weird blisters on my side of the stomach

I have these weird blisters on my side of the stomach, the area is red, the blisters are deep looking surrounded by what it looks like pus but its not draining. One of these blisters has a dark center. The area hurts like crazy and is itchy. ANyone know what the heck it can be?? I have a doctors appt on Monday. Ive had this for a week or so. I am covering it up with a large bandage because any thing that rubs up against it makes it hurt more.

Re: Weird blisters on my side of the stomach

Hiya,

I hope that you are ok.... I saw your message on here and thought that I would send you a quick reply.

My brother had similar symptoms a few years ago and he was diagnosed as having Shingles....... to be honest I don't know much about this condition, but I believe it is part of the same 'family' as chicken pox..... it starts almost like a rash, just little raised bumps and then the pain comes and the little bumps turn into blisters and burst.... the good news is that it is not permanent.

My brother was told that Shingles is generally something that you pick up when your body is run down like if you've been having a stressful time recently.

You are doing the right thing in going to see your doctor...... please let us know how you get on with your appointment on Monday.

Good luck

Tigs x

Thanks Tig, I have researched it and I also thought it might be shingles.
We'll see on Monday. Actually it feels better today, not so itchy.

Thanks again for your reply.
Mary

I got something like this a few years ago from a hot tub that wasn't properly treated-- folliculitis. It was treated with an antibiotic.
