Blistering Mostquito Bite
Been dealing with fleas for many months and my bites have been large and been blistering. Should I get tested for any diseases?
See a Dermatologist: Blistering bites can be caused by many things. If you are certain it is fleas, then take the appropriate action with pest control. However, I would suggest seeing a dermatologist to have the blisters evaluated and treated. That way you can make sure the blisters are, in fact, from fleas and not something else. Good luck to you. ...Read more

What could cause rash, blistering/swelling, and scabbing on ear. With no history of burns, scrapes, insect bites, or contact with allergens?
? Impetigo: What you describe sounds suspicious for impetigo, a strep infection of your skin. You can have a tiny break in your skin that you were not even aware of, and the normal skin bacteria could then enter in and cause a local strep infection. The "scabbing" is what makes me especially suspicious. Try washing with antibacterial wash, put on antibiotic ointment, and if not better in a few days, see doc. ...Read more
Blistered bug bite: Because of individual sensitivities it's possible that your "bites" may be due to many many different insects. You really should consult a dermatologist to get more accurate diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more
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
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
Chiggers: Chigger's bites often have a small red in the center of a welt & occur in areas where skin is tender like the crotch, armpits, beltline, backs of knees or ankles. They are extremely itchy. I don't think that they always create a welt - I had chiggers dozens of times in the blue ridge mountains & I don't remember having blisters. However blisters are reportedly the norm. ...Read more

Bites: I believe that this appearance at the site of the bite is nonspecific and can occur with bites from different insects. It is due to minor amounts of pus and/or serum accumulation after a few days. If there is no spreading redness, significant secondary bacterial infection isn't likely. Keep the sites clean and apply an antibacterial ointment like bacitracin. ...Read more
Anti-itch med: If the blisters itch you can use an over the counter cortisone cream or Diphenhydramine on them per directions on tube. If they look slightly red and infected, apply some over the counter antibiotic if not allergic to it. If severely infected, see a doctor (either pcp or podiatrist). Try to not scratch at the bites. You can keep a bandage over them to deter scratching. ...Read more
