My diagnosis: Bullous ImpetigoDifferential Diagnosis: Burn, contact with caustic agent, mechanical trauma, hypersensitivity reaction to an insect bite, sucking finger too much, touching private area of person with herpes genitalis, looking for love in all the wrong places…
No, probably not bullous impteigo. There should be signs of more spread cellulitis in the surrounding tissues. I guess bullous pemphigoid, thoug the patients age (looks like quite a young finger) probably doesnt match… Antother diff i burn as the previous poster suggested.
