My daughter developed some blister like bumps on her wrist

Customer Question

My daughter developed some blister like bumps on her wrist that have turned into a scabby horrendous wound. It happened about a month ago on her arm and the doctor said it could be chicken pox or a bite, gave me an antibiotic cream and now it has happened again in a different area, infact its on her back, belly and wrist now and last time it was only on her arm, close to her armpit.
JA: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? In general, how would you describe your health lately?
Customer: They just get worse naturally as the days go by, and her health seems fine.
JA: Is there anything else the Expert should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: She is 17 months old and in good health.

This is likely to be a skin infection.

It is likely to be a staph infection (Impetigo, scalded skin) or a strep infection (erysipellas).

It looks like Erysipelas.

You should approach your GP and ask about this.

This is something for which she will need oral antibiotics.

Hope I have been able to clarify the situation for you and helped in resolving your query.
