    I myself had never had any blisters on my skin, up untill last year. I started to get them when my rhuemy. put me on the hydroxchlorin... (spelled wrong)... the blisters in my mouth got so bad i couldnt even eat. My face got very bad also.. looked like my skin was peeling away. The doctor took me off that medicine.... and now im on cellcept, which has made my blisters better.. but still have not completly gone away....
    But these blisters are useually cause from discoid lupus...
    I would talk to your doctor....
    good luck

    That's interesting, I'm also hydroxychlor, I've been on it for a month now and I've had a few sores in my mouth too, but are now gone. My pallet is very sore, difficult to certain foods at times. Will have to see if all this still persist before I see my rhuemy.
    Thanks for your reply.

    When my doctor switched me over to the cellcept, many of the blisters have gone away, and my face isnt peeling away either!! which wasnt fun. Also if you need to cover these blisters up, a great make up is Bare Minerals!! It helps out so much covering these problems areas up!!
