John’s suggestion about neosporin is a good one. I use triple antibiotic for those cases. I don’t think a vet trip is needed, unless infection sets in, then the little guy needs to be seen immediately. If the area of the bites seems to be reddening, then it’s time for professional help.

Hungry crickets of all kinds can be very aggressive. If you still wish to feed crickets, I would not put them in the tank without observing the feeding for the next several weeks, and possibly longer. Mealworms are not a good choice for leopard geckos, but some dubia roaches might be a good alternative. Black soldier fly larvae are also pretty safe.
