So gross ! Have 3 bites at back of ankle and they have developed into large blisters and my foot is swollen and hot . Anti histamine does nothing . Any ideas for taking down the swelling and easing the itching ?

Soak them in icy cold water for the itching, try not to scratch at all and keep an eye that they aren't infected

Already sounds infected to me, see your GP.

Might be worth seeing a doctor. DP gets like this, turn into blister type things and look horrible. Only thing that sorts it is antibiotics. Can't remember the name for it, cellulitis or something I think. Can be quite risky, so take care and please don't fly like that. The pressure changes can make it spread.

Like this?

I went to the pharmacy in Italy when it happened to me and they gave me hydrocortisone cream to put on them and antihistamines to take.

exactly like the pic! I have h/c cream and been applying liberally. I always get them but its strange only ever
on my legs. If I get bitten anywhere else no blisters!
