    small itchy blisters? again!

    about 2 weeks ago, my left leg started itching and i noticed that i had 4 small areas that were very pink and itchy. they felt like mosquito bites. the next day, they started getting bigger and i noticed a tiny blister in the center of all of them. i then noticed 1 on my right leg. the next day, they all had a small cluster of blisters, smaller than half the size of a dime.

    i didnt know what it was so i put everything i could think of on it.. vagisil, lamisil, oatmeal, honey... just to stop the itching which gave me temporary relief.. especially the oatmeal and honey.

    after a few days, they stopped itching and went away. except one turned very red and scabbed which i eventually peeled off.

    then it came back again, now its on my left arm in 3 places. it started itching 2 days ago and then started forming small blisters yesterday. i've been trying honey or oatmeal which is giving me relief, ive also been taking some aspirin.

    anyone have ideas of what it could be? at first i thought it could have been a bug bite but i dont think so. im not allergic to anything. the food ive eaten a couple of weeks ago vs recently were different so i doubt theres any food contamination.

    i was also thinking shingles which could have came on by stress but when i looked at images of it online, mine arent grouped together like a strip. any ideas what it may be?

    Try using cortisone ointment. If it is eczema this could help. But eczema typically starts off as dry irritated skin. Blisters usually pop up on the creases of fingers or palm of hands.

    I believe you will benefit checking out the condition prurgio nodularis. It's a chronic skin condition and mine started out with symptoms such as yours - rash on the legs with a tiny pimple-like dot in the center. Intense itching, unable to control scratching. Now, after 7 years it has spread over body except for face and chest. Hope you will check PN out on your quest to identify your condition.
