    What is causing small blisters/bubbles forming all over the hands?

    Hi, about one and a half weeks ago, my little sister had an allergic reaction around her eye/eyelids. It wasn't too long after that, she started developing rashes and small spots all over her right arm. It then continued to spread to her hands, but instead of small red spots, blisters or little bubbles started forming which are the colour of her skin. Its been about 5 days now, we have currently tried anti-histamines and soaking it in a vinegar-water solution. However, it does not seem to be getting any better. Is there a chance you guys could explain what it could be, recommend me a dermatologist? Or possible solutions?

    Reactions can take weeks to subside. I use pinetarsol a lot for my children and any reactions they have as it is eczema friendly. If your sister was fighting a virus off at the time it could be molluscum warts which are a virus, they are skin coloured and contagious.
