  • Go to a dermatologist in an academic medical center and see an attending there. I once had a weird lesion on my ear that was really rare and the medical school by my home figured it out. A family doc will probably tell you it's a blister or in your head, hee hee...Don't forget to write out any other symptoms you have, even if they are not related to the blister. Also get a complete family history- even of things that happened to family members years ago. And a list of any meds you are taking.Bring all of this in to the doctor.Good Luck!
