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.

Fortunately, most bug bites improve in a week or so. ...Read more

It should heal in a day or two. ...Read more

Are there mosquito bites that do not itch? I have a bug bite , same size as mosquito bite but it's not itching or turning into a blister
