Comment from: Sherry, 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: August 12

I got some bug bites and of course they started itching. After two weeks I noticed an area about the size of a quarter with big blisters. The next morning I went into the doctor's office and they told me it was staph. All the smaller blisters have popped out all around and the big blister and angry red. I was put on antibiotics and given a cream to use.
