Why is this clear liquid still coming out of my bug bite?

Why is this clear liquid still coming out of my bug bite?

During sleep people will often scratch itchy bites without recollection of having done so. I am prone to do this to bites on my ankles with my toenail. If excessive redness or pus (milky fluid) occurs, see your doctor. Cortisone cream helps with itching. Bandaging at night can help too. ...Read more

Taking an antihistamine like benadryl (may cause drowsiness) will also help the reaction and the itch. If redness and burning appear you may be developing cellulitis which requires antibiotic medication and cream. ...Read more
