It is unusual that the blisters have persisted more than 20 days if you have HFM disease. HFM disease will usually last about 1 week or so and clear on its own with or without active treatment.

I suggest that you see your doctor or a dermatologist for a full assessment to exclude other conditions such as autoimmune disorders which may present in a similar manner.

Hope this helps!
