close to each other with margins that merge coalescing
lesion above the plane of skin or mucosa, considered blisterform or nonblisterform elevated lesion
lesion that contains fluid, usually soft and translucent blisterform
blisterform lesion, small 1cm or less, this surface covering, may contain serum or mucin & appear white vesicle
blisterform lesion, may be more or less than 5mm in diameter, contains pus that gives yellowish color pustule
