Is there anything I can do when a bug bite turns in to a blister?

Yes: Bug bites can turn to blisters sometimes. This is from the intense reaction that the bite caused in the skin. It's best to not pop blisters as this can open the skin to infection. Topical steroids such as Hydrocortisone cream applied under a band-aid can help reduce the inflammation (and intense itching) and minimize the risk of infection. Fortunately, most bug bites improve in a week or so. ...Read more

See a derm, biopsy: You should see a dermatologist for evaluation, possible cultures and/or biopsy, and advice on treatment. They will also need to take a thorough medical history. Do you have one lesion vs many lesions, where are they located, is it itchier at night (common description with scabies), how often does it recur and how long does it last. ...Read more

If a bug bite has a blister top on it do you pop the blister or will that make it worse?

Leave it alone: By opening it artificially you will create an open inflamed surface onto which bacterial growth may occur. If you can tolerate leaving it alone, do so. If you cannot, have your pharmacist suggest an antibacterial ointment you can apply to the surface or just wash with soap and water and keep it very clean. It should heal in a day or two. ...Read more
