Rash with blisters

Jul 29, 2010

I'm 16 and concerned I may have HIV I'm not sexually active but lately I've been getting "bites" that I'm starting to think are a rash they itch insanely and blister with what looks like water inside, it's appeared on my hands arms legs and feet. They all look different tho the ones on my feet itches insanely then a blister formed when I pop the blister the itching stopped, the ones on my legs and arms are swollen and itchy but don't blister, and the ones on my hand swell but are small. I'm wondering if this Is a symptom of HIV or just a different rash or bite? I've heard fire ant bites look like this but I don't think that's this because I keep getting them. Any ideas on what it could be?

Response from Mr. Vergel

You need to go see a dermatologist. It could be allergies, herpes, folliculitis, or many other conditions.
