BLISTER ON FINGER 2
Hi Doc

Thank you very much for the reply on my problem. I am however very worried when you said ' herpes infections or something serious'

What is the something serious and how can you get an herpes infection if neither of us has ever had a STD?

This is very worrying, please advice if you have the time.

Thank you once again for your prompt response.

Hi Minx
You can get a herpes infection from a cold sore or fever blister. It could also be a sign of herpes zoster or shingles - but I still think it is just an eczema!
