Question:

My 6 year old daughter has pretty large blisters on the inside and the rim of her nose. It started out as what looked like dry skin them progressed into blisters/scabs. She isn`t complaining of any pain, but the area in swollen and she says it itches.

Answer:

I would advise that your daughter be seen by your pediatric health care professional to make sure this is not a bacterial or viral infection that requires medication.
