Thanks. So do these always appear in the same place?

Customer: replied 20 days ago.
No. Sometimes they recur at the site of a previous lesion and other times they appear in new places. They are predominantly on my legs and arms and occasionally on my abdomen. They do not appear on my face.
Expert:  Tim Brown replied 20 days ago.

Okay thanks. So if it was from a bite, you would expect it to appear in the same place each time. Inflammation of the skin can cause blisters like this as they appear from slightly deeper within the dermis.

given the duration you have had them I would suggest you need to get a biopsy of one of these lesions now. Have you been under a dermatology clinic?
