a week ago there was a clear insect crawling on my arm, when i killed it my hand felt like it had fiberglass in it for two days. do you know what it could have been? also, it itches terribly and nothing i put on it works!!!!!!!!!!!
Sounds like a blister bug. In the Southwest we have those bugs. The kissing bug also leaves a very itchy area. You might try Gold Bond anti-itch lotion. It's stronger than the others I've tried. Also from time to time you could put a compress of salt water or vinegar to draw out the poison.
