Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I will be helping you out with your queries.
The most common cause of blisters on the skin of the penis is as a result of type 2 herpes virus.
Infection with this particular virus is life-long.
This virus hides in the nerves and can be reactivated by various illnesses such as in your case.
You may require antiviral therapy in the form of acyclovir to treat this.
This will treat it but will not cure the virus as it continues to hide in the nerves and may reactivate anytime later as well.
Let me know if you have more questions.
