Are Blisters Contagious?
Blisters are not typically contagious in and of themselves. However, some conditions that cause blisters may be contagious. For example, the herpes simplex virus can cause highly contagious blisters and can be spread through skin-to-skin contact or contact with infected bodily fluids. Chickenpox and shingles are also contagious viral infections that can cause blistering.
In general, blisters can be caused by a variety of factors, including friction, burns, allergic reactions, and infections. Blisters caused by non-contagious conditions are not themselves contagious.
If you are unsure about the cause of your blisters or if you have a blistering rash that is accompanied by other symptoms such as fever or chills, it’s essential to seek medical attention to determine the cause and appropriate treatment.
