Bug bite that causes large blister, treatment?

Local wound care: Local wound care usually involves washing with a gentle soap and water twice daily, applying antibiotic ointment and monitoring for signs of infection. Increased redness, ulceration, swelling and pain, especially when combined with the appearance of pus indicates an infection which should be evaluated by a primary care physician. ...Read more

Bug bite that has little blisters around it, treatment?

Leave it alone.: I generally don't recommend popping blisters of any kind unless they are painful, because of the risk of infection. If it's not bothering you, cover it with a bandaid. If it itches, apply Hydrocortisone cream 2-3 times a day. If it gets painful or tender, or develops a red ring around it, see your doctor or a dermatologist. ...Read more

Seeking medical : Attention is never bad or wrong, afterall, you do have a problem. Alternatively, l if you feel comfortable using a sterile instrument you can pop the blister allow it to drain and place some antibiotic ointment to the site and bandage it. Change daily and monitor the wound and yourself for any fever or signs of redness or swelling by the bites. ...Read more

See doc asap: It could very possibly be a spider bite. I would recommend seeing your doctor asap as infection can set in quickly if it is a certain type of spider. Antibiotics would be a good idea if there is cellulitis (redness and warmth around the site). A doctor should pur eyes on it soon. ...Read more

Topical ointment: The area will heal on its own eventually, but you can expedite healing with a topical antibiotic ointment to prevent bacterial colonization and provide occlusion that aids healing faster then leaving it open to the air. Plain vaseline may work just as well. A band-aid also provides a moister environment to expedite healing. ...Read more

Won'tGetBurnedAgain: The ones that have turned white may be infected so best to gently wash with soap and water using a washcloth to break them up, then apply a thin layer of an antibacterial ointment. If it starts to spread or increase in pain, start throbbing and feel like you got sunburned again, see your doctor. Use plenty of sunblock in the future, and add some extra to that area, it'll be sensitive for a while ...Read more
