I do not have a medical background, so I might be off.
I guess if the Khatira are small and filled with watery fluid, you could call it "warts".
If its an allergic reaction, if those kharita are itchy, you might call it "hives". You can have hives all over you body, i believe they look a little reddish.

No matter what they are called, they medical person will be able to identify it once they get to examine it. So I would just call and tell them that you have go the hives and want to have it checked out.

not too sure but i think "blisters" (the more commonly used term) covers for both khatira and foka (due to burning or irritation)

In medical terminology, the symptoms: redness, itching and dryness, blistering, oozing and bleeding are all attributed to the form of a dermatitis(skin disease) called eczema, but that's more specific and not all blisters are caused by eczema. I heard that eczema is a common disease among us Nepalese though just like gastric is :P

anyways, hope that helps...

any docs out there? correct me if i am wrong :D

or, Pustule (if it has pus inside),

or, blister( if it has watery fluid inside)

Boil  is what we call "pilo"  in thet nepali.

I think blister is the right generalised word. Any small foka can be called blister. Boil is usually used to mention our "Pilo". And "wart" is musa, not foka as someone mentioned earlier.

If you have difficulty explaining someone who does not understand nepali then the best way is to explain in general terms...just say "got some skin infection or skin problems".
