Distinction between edema and blister
I have been vac hanging for about a month. Every time, pretty much no matter how low weight I use, I get edema in my glans and especially around frenulum.
Today, however, in addition to the general swelling (which is quite large as usual), I also have a blister. Could someone tell me what exactly the difference between edema and blister is? I know they are both lymph fluid built up to protect body. But why are blisters right on the surface of the skin whereas edema is not? And why do they happen in vac hanging when edema is already happening?
Lastly, how long is this thing likely to be around? It hasn’t popped, but it is a true blister and not mere/more common fluid buildup.
