Ok, I have blisters like sores on my butt. I don't know what to do for them, or why they are there. I have been putting neosporin on them. They go away and then come back in another spot. There is one right on my tailbone. and one down by my anus off to the side. Now I haven't done anything different...soap, TP, ect. The only think is my flare. I am on pred for the last month+. Will that cause it. I use baby wipes to keep clean...ones I have always used...no change there. I dry real good. I am at a loss as to why they keep coming back. Since this flare I have also had sores in my mouth, swollen tongue, cold sores? blisters on my lips...kinda different than cold sores that I get when I am run down.
 
Is this the UC...the Pred...or something else? Does anyone else get these? What do you do for it. Today I put benadryl on them. They itch. if I pop them they stop itching and go away in a few days but just keep coming back. I am not popping these just to see if that is spreading them.
 
I never had this before. Hope someone can help me out there
thanks

Hummm. Anytime I go beyond 10 mg of Prednisone, I get blisters in my mouth and the doctor did say it was a side effect of the Pred. With the body, you never know. Good luck. Oh, by the way, she told me to use a OTC antiseptic oral wash and it really helped--maybe you can use a skin-type antiseptic, worth a shot.

Blisters...could be herpes outbreak?

Please don't pop them, for you could be spreading whatever it is.

Don't share towels and make sure you are cautious for others in your home.

Make an appointment with the doc asap and get him to FOR SURE do a swab rather that saying "oh it's just..."

Keep us posted.

The least you do with it might be better. If you have Cetaphil,maybe clean the area with that, dab with something disposable and don't touch.

An oral antihistamine could prbably help with the itching.

Hope this is just areaction to pred.

Ok thanks, I have not popped these because of spreading them. I use clean towels and washcloths everytime I bath. I use other stuff for my face. I did put an antihistamine on them this morning and they are much better. I don't think it is herpes...but I am not sure if you can spread herpes from the mouth to the butt via a wash cloth...but as I said I am very carefull about that...I don't wash my face with the same washcloth I wash my butt with. I do know for sure they are not sexually transmitted. I will call the dr and see what he has to say.
thanks everyone

I agree with Quincy....it could be herpies or shingles.  Is there any burning and are the blisters on one side of the body?  Shingles follow a nerve and never cross over from one side to the other. Very important to go check that out.
