I apply antifungal cream and powder daily also triple antibiotic when the blisters pop but nothing seems to give. When they pop the blisters fill up with more fluid and then more blisters appear. One blister popped and as I lifted up the skin to see inside it was like a deep cutt. I cant afford to go to the doctors to go for lab tests, I cant take this issue happening for Im affraid it could spread let alone give it to my children or spouse. I need help and advice of what to use and or do.

This could be something that isn't any kind of infection, but coming from your immune system. Its not real safe to mess around with things like this on your feet. Circulation could be a problem. I would keep it real clean, wear white socks all the time to contain drainage, and watch it for any signs of infection or spreading, since a doc would be a hardship. If you have any signs of infection or getting worse you are going to have to see a dr. also if you show signs of poor circulation, like fluid retention or change in color or temperature.
The other thought is your shoes. They could reinfect if it is an infection.

I am pretty sure that I know what this is and it is not an infection. You should see a Qualified Dermatologist and be checked for a heriditary condition called Epidermolysis Bullosa Simplex, or EB for short. My son has this and it runs in his family and we had no idea what it was until I took him to a Dermatologist and he told us what it was. This is a rare condition that effects the underlying tissue under the skin. The way that the doctor explained it to us is that, my son is lacking a certain enzyme that connects the upper layers of skin on the soles of his feet to the underlying layers of tissue, because of this, fluid builds up and it causes painful blisters that can itch, and can contain a clear to yellowish fluid that is thick! The blisters come from the inside out unlike blisters that you get from say your shoes rubbing. There is no cure for EB but there are some treatments. There are many forms of EB and actually this is the best one to have if you have EB.
There are people who have this all over their bodies and that type is fatal.
I am not a doctor, or a medical professional , but like I said I have a son with this he has had it from birth, his father has it, his grandmother, his aunt, and some cousins and his half-brother also have it, all on his dad's side. So I know a lot about it as I have been dealing with it for over 20 years now. I am not saying that this is what you have, but it could be this, and you should go to a Dermatologist and be checked for it. If you want more information on EB you can go to a site called DEBRA.COM. They have been loads of help for my son and I and it may help you to get more information.
Honestly, I hope that I am wrong , and that you don't have EB because it is very painful, but if you do, I am here if you need any suggestions on how to relieve the pain. My son will be 19 in 6 days and has been dealing with it all his life.
Please let me know if this is what you have.
Take care, and good luck to you.
