I got a nasty blister on my foot and I swelled up?

Hi there i am unsure if any of these could be related but, I am holiday in new zealand and the day before yesterday I got a nasty blister on my foot. Later that evening that swelled up. In the morning I woke to find that it had gone down but instead both my eyes were badly swollen so much it affected my eyesight. I also noticed that on my arms I had a bit of a red rash. It went down over a few hours and this morning the same eye swelling has happened again. Please help

It may or may not be related. Blisters are normally the result of friction or improper shoe fitting. But may also be caused by an allergic reaction or an insect bite. If you have fever, if it is reddish in color and swells up it may be infected (if there is pus) or the result of an infection. Which means you should get it checked out by a doctor.

Hi..
The blister can be due to infection or irritation caused by ill fitting or tight shoe.
However swollen eyes and rash can be due to allergic reaction.
So my suggestion is to once consult an Emergency room and get evaluated..
Once the causd is confirmed then treating it with antibiotics or anti allergics can be done..

Regards.

Hello. The cause of swelling of the eyes and rash should to be determined. Most likely cause is an allergic reaction. Most probable causes : Food, dust mites, mold, insect bites, pollen or plants. Thank you.
