Bug bite that is swollen and bruised with a cluster of blisters next to the bite?

Infection: This could be some type of allergic reaction, but your symptoms worry me. A staph or strep infection some times starts out this way. Elevate the area, apply warm compress. If not better see your doctor right away to get it checked out.
