Where do blisters come from?
What causes blisters in children?
Sarah Broadhead | Pediatrician
Blisters are commonly caused by injury, allergic reactions, or infections. Specific causes for blisters in children can include:
- Reactions to medications
- Burns, scalds, and sunburns
- Friction or irritation
- Contact dermatitis
- Viral infections (Hand, Foot and Mouth disease)
- Fungal infections
However, if you suspect your child's symptoms are actually indicative of a more serious skin condition, speak to your child’s health care provider for a clear diagnosis.Read more answers by Dr. Broadhead
