Skin blisters that are not caused by burns are most likely due to a skin infection. Various skin disorders due to infection include:
Viral infections: chicken pox, herpes zoster, herpes simplex
Bacterial infection: bullous impetigo
Yeast infection: rarely causes blistering
Not an infection: dermatitis
Regarding your complaint, blisters accompanied by pain can indicate a viral or bacterial infection that has occurred. Bullous impetigo is characterized by blistering and fluid-filled skin. Usually accompanied by itching around the blistered skin which over time will dry up and heal with or without leaving a scar. Meanwhile, a viral infection such as chickenpox will cause water sores which is quite a lot spread to almost the entire body. Herpes zoster is caused by the same virus as chickenpox, but the difference is that in herpes zoster the disease lesions are more localized and generally only on one side of the body. Redness, itching, feeling hot and a fluid-filled sore are characteristic of herpes zooster. The symptoms caused by herpes simplex are almost similar to those of herpes zoster, but the difference is only in the viral cause and the location of the lesions that usually occur in the pubic area and around the mouth.
Treatment consists of antibiotics for bacterial infections and antivirals for causes caused by viruses. If the complaint has not improved, then you should check directly with your nearest doctor. Because the treatment of your complaint requires visualization and direct examination to determine the cause. So much information from me, hope it helps.
