In August I noticed a small blister just under my nail on one of my toes. It grew a little more each day. By the end of the week it had covered my entire toe and was onto the top of my foot. Since it didn't hurt, I usually forgot about after I got dressed in the mornings until I went to bed at night and saw my foot again. It broke in about 7 days, still didn't hurt, but my toe turned fire engine red. I finally went to the doctor and he had no idea what caused it. He sent me to a dermatologist, but by the time I got into see him it was almost healed so he had no idea either. Well, they came back on the other foot 2 weeks ago on 2 toes. I went to the dermatologist while they were still on my foot and he still had no idea. He did a biopsy on one of the blisters and I'm to see him tomorrow. about 2 days after I saw him I got another blister on my other foot. Still no pain on any of them. I haven't started any new meds or new soaps, etc. Anyone ever heard of this before?

I just added a title to your post

Okay, now that you're on the right forum :) Blisters can be from various things...wrong fitted shoes/socks that rub against the toes, excess moisture, fungal infections, allergic reactions (you can have allergies at any time regardless of past history), Diabetes, poor circulation. The list can go on and on. The best place to start is where you already did, by going to your doctor to try to find the culprit.

I don't get blisters on my toes, but I do get little painless ones on my legs all the time. No known cause, but my docs tend to think it's from either my medications or my auto immune issues.

Thanks, I'll let you know what the doctor says tomorrow.   Hopefully, he will have an answer for me.

I have had a similar thing, and I think that it was chillblains. Both times I have had this was after my feet had been exposed to damp/cold conditions. I hope that you find the answers that you need soon!

Let us know what you find out from your doctor.

I have blisters appearing on my toes. They are full of a watery substance, if not popped they grow and get huge. My family Dr. has no idea. Has any one had these and what could be causing them. I don't have them any where else but after popped they are very sore and don't want to heal. As I said if I don't pop them they grow and grow. HELP

mthic, welcome to Healing Well! Your family doc needs to send you to a dermatologist. There are several odd skin conditions that cause this.
