I have a three year old daughter who recently developed a blister on her ankle. She even contacted fever then. The problem is that her blisters are spreading slowly to other parts of her skin although the old ones are healing. She is under Ayurvedic medication for it. Should I allow sometime for it to heal or is it a medical emergency. Please help.

  • Hi. I'm sorry I don't have any answers for you, but I'm bumping this up so someone can help you. Does your little girl still have the blisters, or have they healed up by now? I hope she feels better soon.

  • Yes,it could be MRSA and will require a stronger medication. She needs lab work and/or to see a MD. It could also be a bug bite.

  • My friend that developed those blisters on her feet. It first started on her hands though. Started out as one....then later that day became 2 blisters. By the end of day 2, her hands and feet were covered in the blisters. We had first thought that the initial blisters were bug bites. Then after they spread to her hands and the bottoms of her feet, she went to the emergency room. It turned out that what she had was hand-foot-mouth disease or otherwise known in infants as flush mouth because the infants usually show signs of it in the their mouths from putting their hands and feet in their mouths.It requires very strong antibiotics to clear it up and it will appear to get worse before it gets better. It took her a little over a week for hers to clear up. Then she had very flaky skin that looked as if she were peeling from a severe burn or sunburn.I hope this helps! I wish you health and a speedy healing.Sheila
