I get blisters on my feet every year in spring and autumn (fall) mainly but sometimes a few in summer. My shoes and socks are comfortable all year round and all the allergy tests came back negative. Any ideas what might be causing my blisters and what can I do about them?
The blisters are usually about 5mms in diameter and get very painful to the point they sometimes make walking very painful. My Dr is totally unphased by them and just suggests anti-fungal spray or creams, which clears them up for a week or so and then they are back with attitude.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!
I read your question and I understand your concern.
These symptoms are consistent with blistering tinea, a type of fungal infection. You would need changing of shoes and socks besides antifungal for atleast 1 month. I would suggest you to have random blood sugar as well.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
