My daughter, 8, developed some strange blister like sores on her arm over the past two days. There is a lump under the skin, redness around the area, and a white (looks like puss-filled) blister with a small black dot in the center on each one. They are very painful. What is this?

Strange Sores
Well, just wanted to let you know the sores are gone.......After much pain and crying.....It was impetigo! We've never had that before and i've only seen it once in my life. I'm so upset because my older daughter had it also and we didn't know it. It was on her mouth and the doctor, two different times, diagnosed it as a cold sore!!!!!

If they would have known what it was to begin with, it could have been healed up and my younger daughter would never have gotten it!

Sometimes docs are very irritating...

Thank you for your response

Could You Tell Me More?
I too was diagnosed with impetigo around my bikini area. I used a dull razor when shaving my bikini line and got bad razor burn. I scratched and a week later the area was all swollen and red and so uncomfortable. The doctor prescribed me amoxicillin and i've ben on it only a day, but I would appreciate any tips. The itching is awful and hard to resist and i've been using benadryl cream on the area. How long did it take to completely heal. What meds did your doctor prescribe. Any response would be very helpful. Thank you in advance.
