Fire ant bites can have pus in them, but they are sterile; it's due to the venom's damage. See your doctor for diagnosis. ...Read more

Dermatologist: If these nonitchy skin lesions continue to occur you should consult a dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment. If there is associated leg discomfort and only that leg has the lesions, shingles is a possibility.
