Hi Mb37 - That almost looks like a bite.. Is it itchy? Sore? Can you see a center on it? I would give the Doc a ring if it continues. Meantime, I would recommend that you put Benadryl cream on it, and at night, maybe take a Benadryl to help combat the allergic reaction if that is what it is.. Let us know how you do...

Hi doctor said possibly a cyst or viral reaction .can't refer me to skin specialist until I have had it 4_6 weeks.so just monitor if grows and return.

There are many reasons for a blister like this. Sorry you have it. I cannot suggest just checking one reason. Please have a cardiac eval.
