Bug bite or something else?

YANMD, but I noticed right after dinner (around 7pm) that I had a small grouping of blisters on my hand. On the way out of the restaurant, I then noticed that the muscles under the blisters are twitching, causing my thumb to move slightly. Is this a bug bite or something else?

I was going to go to an Urgi-med, but they all close at 8pm. It's been about two hours since I first noticed this, and the blisters/redness hasn't gotten any bigger or spread anywhere else, but the muscle spasms are still coming and going. The hand feels slightly numb, but not sure if that is just psychosomatic.
Google gives me everything from Lyme disease to Tourette's, and while I am in brown recluse territory (South Florida), I don't recall being bit by anything and muscle twitches don't appear to be in the list of symptoms of a spider bite. The area feels a bit tight, achy, and slightly itchy to the elbow (again not really bad, so I'm not sure if it's my mind) but there is no significant pain.
The only thing I've done so far is look on google (fruitless) and wash my hands really well.
I owe the ER 1,100 for a moth getting stuck in my ear around Christmas, so I don't want to go unless I'm probably going to die tonight in my sleep.
