What can I do about bug bits on the skin that is blistered?


Answer by  linsm (898)

Seek medical attention in order to determine if the insect bite has caused the skin to blister, as well as to evaluate the bite itself and recommend the proper treatment.

Don't scratch or pop them. Apply hydrocortisone cream to reduce itching and swelling, and take a painkiller if they hurt. Most of these bites will go away on their own within 1-2 weeks. If they do not, see your doctor to figure out the most effective remedy for your blistered bites.

Wash the area with soap and water or with alcohol. Then apply ice or cold compress for few minutes to relieve the pain. Apply antihistamines or 1% hydrocortisone.

Home treatment for bug bites - a mild immune reaction to the saliva of certain insects - is the topical application of hydrocortisone cream to the affected area.

If the blisters on the skin has liquid that is greenish in color, use a steralized sharp object to poke over the blisters. Squeeze the liquid out totally and then use an alcohol swap to wipe off the liquid. This will prevent the blisters from getting bigger and more painful.
