Itchy blisters

have been getting very small itchy blisters on various spots




on my arms and legs.  The small blisters develop and immediately itch intensely, which is how I know they're there.  They have a clear fluid inside, with no puss.  When I scratch


them in my sleep or when they break, they often weep a little  amber colored liquid.  Also, when I scratch


them, more tiny blisters will develop around the original blister, signifying an infection.  These broken


blisters often leave  (little open sores) which can be difficult and slow to heal.  These outbreaks seem to come in waves, as I'll often go weeks or even a month or two without a sign of blisters, itching






, or infection.  I have never had any white puss or swelling










redness around these troublesome blisters/vesicles, which isn't like any normal skin infection I've ever had before.  Can anyone help me diagnosis this problem please?

Hello,
One possibility is of plant contact eczema where the smaller vesicles have joined up to form a blister. On the sun exposed areas of the arms and legs porphyria cutanea tarda may cause blisters and skin fragility and erosions. A biopsy skin can confirm the diagnosis for which you should consult a dermatologist. Till the, wear cotton clothes and apply Neosporin cream to prevent any infection of the open sores.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
