Anything that rubs the skin consistently, and with a good amount of force, can cause blisters. Clothing and shoes that fit poorly come to mind. Get clothes that fit better. Another thing that can cause blistering is extreme heat and cold. Walking on hot pavement with bare feet and cause blisters.

Most often blisters on the hands or feet are caused by friction usually in your shoes, against a pen or pencil, or improper work gear. When too much friction occurs the outer layer of skin separates from the inner layer. This space then fills with lymph fluid which creates inflammation.

It sounds like you have been using your hands and feet a lot. Take a break from whatever you are doing. Generally, blisters will go away on their own. It is not recommended to break them yourself. It is possible to cause infection in your blood. Just slow down with what you are doing and they will go away.

Blisters are called Bullae. Bullous contact dermatitis -means an allergic reation with blisters. You have bullous Tinea which is a fungal infection. You have a blistering disease-Bullous Pemphigoid or Bullous Staph that causes blisters. A culture of the blister fluid needs to be done to help with the diagnosis.

Big blisters on the hands and feet can be cause by excessive and repetitive friction or rubbing in the same area for a prolonged amount of time. These tend to be more common in such areas of the body that support a more significant amount of weight a person carries.
