Hello Everyone! Let me give you a detail of my current skin problem and I’m hoping that someone can help me on what to do. It was late September 2006 that blisters started occurring on my chest and I am assured that this is because of the sudden change of weather in our locale, it was the intense heat. I learned that this may also be due to friction due to the fit shirts that I wore. So I jut let them come out and because of the itch, and ignorantly having this for the first time, the blisters pop… and that started my misery.
I noticed that the blisters kept popping on different areas of my body especially on my shoulders and back and other areas covered by my t-shirt. At first, I used IODINE and POWDER just to disinfect the wound since I known this as a common cleanser. The blisters on my chest area were gone and just left pigmentation. Months after, my back and stomach area is full of little blisters clustered in groups. At first, I used an anti-itch cream just to prevent me from scratching and popping them. It gave me comfort but it doesn’t stop them from spreading. I then tried BACITRACIN as my anti-bacterial ointment. I discontinue using it because though it dries the blisters (making the area like a pimple red scar), the area surrounding the scars starts having the clusters of small blisters again.
Now it has worsened, and at times swelling giving me the best discomfort even though tolerable. I was instructed to use FUCIDIN (Fucidic Acid) ointment and learned that this is the applicable ointment. It helped in lessening the swelling and lightening the blister-scarred areas. Dried scars are left on some part my skin. But what bothers me is that it slowly heals the area, but around the scarred area, the clusters of blisters keep coming back…again and again!
I already took Erythromycin as my oral antibiotic.
What’s happening to me? What am I to do?
Is there also a way to clear the pigmentation in the skin left by the scars?
I know, many would tell me to go to a dermatologist and I think it’s REALLY the right thing, but pardon me please for being financially embarrassed. Yeh, we’re poor…
