Almost any kind.: Virtually any sort of bug bite can cause blistering. I generally don't recommend popping these blisters 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
