Tinea versicolor or ptyriasis versicolor is another common and harmless skin condition that affects skin color.

If the blister breaks, cleanse the area with soapy water and monitor it for signs of infection.
If the area becomes discolored or starts leaking pus, it may have become infected. Seek medical attention immediately.
