Hard to say: Often blistering is related to a spider bite, but can be caused by another insect. Tick bites usually cause a hard centre. Keep them clean, use a medication for itching, and follow up for any unusual symptoms. All the best. ...Read more

There may also be itchiness, redness, and swelling associated. "Blister beetles" can also do that. ...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?

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
