A 21-year-old female asked:
Got a little blister on ankle that might be a mosquito bite, its open & itches like crazy, band aid on & small clear fluid coming out, what is it?

Blister: Since there is itching it may be a bite or a very localized contact dermatitis such as poison ivy. At this time, keep the lesion clean,pat dry and apply a cortisone type cream to reduce itching. Spreading redness and warmth would suggest secondary bacterial infection which could need both topical and oral antibiotic. See MD as needed.
