Blisters Signs, Symptoms

Common symptoms of a blister include:

  • Pain or discomfort in the affected area.
  • Swelling or redness around the blister.
  • A small, raised bump on the skin that may be filled with clear fluid or blood.
  • Tenderness or sensitivity to touch.
  • Itching or burning sensation.
  • The skin around the blister may be warm to the touch.
  • As the blister dries up, the skin may become flaky, crusty, or scaly.
  • In some cases, blisters may be accompanied by fever or other signs of infection.

It’s important to avoid popping or puncturing a blister, as this can increase the risk of infection. If you have a large-sized or painful blister, or if it’s accompanied by other symptoms such as fever, it’s important to see a healthcare provider for an evaluation and treatment.
