Are you a diabetic? Acral bulluous diabeticorum is my clinical impression .As  a differential diagnosis I would consider porphyria. Best wishes.

Although bullous disease of diabetes lesions often heal without significant scarring, they may be recurrent and also may lead to ulceration.[5] There have also been reports of osteomyelitis arising at a site of bullous disease of diabetes[6]

The higher prevalence of diabetes among those with porphyria than the general

And also certain anti-diabetic drugs may induce porphria cutanea tarda. Do consult your doc. Best wishes for speedy and complete recovery.
