what are these weird things I keep getting?

In the past few weeks i keep getting odd things on my face (only my face)

They start off as white throbbing areas and then quickly come to a small head like a watery blister. They then stop hurting and the white swollen bit goes away but the middle bit scabs over.

Could it be an allergy?

Dr Sauce here thinks it sounds like boils. Are you tired? stressed? not eating enough fruit & veg?

CountessDaveula Thu 22-Feb-07 20:29:34

no not boils
They are not red around, white and more like an allergy

CountessDaveula Thu 22-Feb-07 20:30:15

maybe they are spots
i have never had spots tbh other than when I was pg I had them on my chin but they were much much more painful than this. These don't really hurt

Watery blisters don't sound like spots to me. Sounds like you need to go to Doctors.

Could it be this?

Um, how about Molluscum? dd had it, and it looked just like that. Not on her face, but only in one area on her body. Unusual for adults not to have had it young (and therefore have immunity) but if you haven't, its easy to catch from kids.

I have had urticaria several times, and it never looked like blisters on me...but suppose it can vary from person to person, possibly
