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

Yes

Hydrocortisone
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.

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.

Bug bite that is swollen and bruised with a cluster of blisters next to the bite?

Infection

Bruise
This could be some type of allergic reaction, but your symptoms worry me. A staph or strep infection some times starts out this way. Elevate the area, apply warm compress. If not better see your doctor right away to get it checked out.

My daughter has a bug bite allergy that she blisters up when bitten how to protect and treat blisters that form?

Bug bites

Allergies
The best way to prevent them is to use bug repellent such as Off. To treat the blisters, try OTC cortisone cream twice a day. If that doesn't work, see your dermatologist for something stronger.

It could be that your lesion is not actually a bug bite, or it could have become infected from scratching. Please see your doctor to get it checked.

Bug bite on ankle. Hurts, itches, swollen and bruised. About an inch from the bite Is a cluster of liquid filled blisters. What could it be?

Bug bite reaction

Blistering
Assuming it is definitely a bug bite, this is probably more bites or reaction to any venom injected by the insect. See your PCP if it doesn't improve quickly.

Some kind of insect bit me (looks like regular mosquito bite) but when scratched even lightly blood blisters surround entire area. Any Ideas?

Blood Blisters

Blood
Blood blisters are caused when the blood vessels under the surface of the skin are ruptured. The most common cause of this rupturing is some form of trauma, such as hitting your thumb with a hammer, to the area. They frequently occur in areas that regular blisters occur. The feet are most prone to blood blisters due to poorly sized footwear. The hands are also susceptible for this type of blister,
