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?

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

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?

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

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