My little girl (13months) who is otherwise the picture of health was cranky and irritable and limping.
When we looked at her foot she had a huge blood blister on her heel - surrounded by 10-20 tiny little clear blisters. It was very infected looking.
The doctor didn't know what was wrong and gave her antibiotics to combat the infection.
However five of the little clear blisters have grown 7-10 times their original size and turned into blood blisters too. Now they are surrounded in lots of little blisters which look like they are growing and spreading too.
I know blood blisters are generally caused by friction or crushing - but I know where and what my little girl has done - and nothing has happened to her foot - and it doesn't explain the infection or rapid spreading of the blisters.

Please help if you have seen or heard of this before - she is in pain and I dont know what is wrong or how to help.
