Suggest treatment for an itchy red spot on the elbow

Wednesday night, after having been outside most of the day in northern Wisconsin, I noticed a small bug bite on the inside of my elbow. When I went to bed, I noticed that it had become itchy and red. Now, the bite presents as a small raised area of blisters surrounded by a red patch which is about 3 inches in diameter.

Thank you for asking HCM
I have gone through your query. It can be due to insect bite reaction. Using combined anti fungal antibiotic and corticosteroid creams will be helpful.
