The 'Twacha Clinic'
A blister, which is also called a vesicle by medical professionals, is a raised portion of skin that is filled with fluid. You’re probably familiar with blisters if you’ve ever worn ill-fitting shoes for too long.
This common cause of blistering produces vesicles when friction between your skin and the shoe results in layers of skin separating and filling with fluid.
- Characterized by watery, clear, fluid-filled area on the skin
- May be smaller than 1 cm (vesicle) or larger than 1 cm (bulla) and occur alone or in groups
- Can be found anywhere on the body
