  • If it is a white blister filled with clear fluid then it is most likely caused from irritation. I would say that his underwear or pants are rubbing and it's leaving blisters.

  • It could just be clothes rubbing?

  • What is it filled with?

    Answer by butterflyblue19 at 6:08 PM on Aug. 20, 2010

  • Yeah, is it filled with clear fluid? That's from something rubbing. Clothing, wallet, sports uniform/equipment. If it's filled with white stuff it's probably a boil. Don't worry, it'll go away, he probably got something on his skin that he reacted to.

  • Could be any of the things listed above. However, keep a close eye on it. If it grows in size or looks infected (red, oozing, hot), take him in to the dr. A few things come to mind not mentioned above, but it's hard to know what to say, b/c you didn't give a lot of information. Is it possible, with it being Summer that it could be a burn from a snap or button (they can get hot in the heat), or from a belt buckle? It could also be an allergic reaction, a bite or sting...

  • He could have been bitten by a blister bug. If he's been outside, I would suspect that rather than clothes rubbing, especially on his hip.

  • It could be a bug bite, or something rubbing from his clothes. I would keep an eye on it like someone else mentioned.

  • His underwear may be to tight try a different size.

  • it could be a number of things, anything from his clothes rubbing on his skin, to a bug bite, exposure to a plant, or chemicals, or a burn. it depends on where exactly its at, what it looks like, how big. IF your uncomfortable with it, call your ped or your insurances nurse first line.
