black fly (gnat) bites

I have been biten several time by what I believe is gnas.  Each time being bitten, the area is swollen.  I recently have a itchy, red, swollen ankle with water bubbles and warm to the touch.  Can you advise on how to treat?

go to the doctor...it could be staph infection... sometimes it may appear as gnat bites...also if you were getting bit by gnats they could be carrying an infection of some sort
