Rash on bilateral lower extremities

21 months old male brought by Mom with the c/o rashes on bilateral lower extremities x 1d. Blistering lesions to Right ankle and the other lesions appear to be unroofed blisters. Up to date with immunizations. Rash spares the soles, palms, mouth. No obvious pain, pruritus, new topical products, recent illness, fever, travel/time outdoors. They don’t appear consistent with insect bites. Bullous impetigo? Thoughts? .

It seems to be of Bullous impetigo. It  is a bacterial skin infection caused by Staphylococcus aureus that results in the formation of large blisters called bullae, usually in areas with skin folds like the armpit, groin, between the fingers or toes, beneath the breast, and between the buttocks.
Bullous impetigo Bs Antibiotics orally. Analgesic antiinflammatory orally. Topical antibiotics. Improve General health and personal hygiene. Keep the area clean dry and covered with sterile gauge.
Thanks Dr Pushkar Bhomia

It's Insect bite hypersensitivity, treat accordingly doesn't look like bullous impetigo to me
Bullous impetigo . Drug allergy / insect bite allergy is still very likely
Thank you, Doctor
