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

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

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
