Chiggers bite you where there is snug fitting clothes ....sock area, waist band, behind knees when wearing pants, etc.


Thank God For Your Blessings!

Been in to chiggers in my youth, they don't raise like these bites. I could be wrong but I don't think chiggers.

Can they raise like that Mike and be inflammatory? We were in very remote mountain side gravesites.

SW, that is where all the bites are, from all of us.

Bed bugs would go for any exposed skin at night while in bed.

Yeah, they can welt up pretty good, depending on an individual's sensitivity and how much you scratch.

You can see how Elk's bites are flat and kind of spread out like a rash. Your bites are smaller and rounder, typical of chiggers.

I have stayed in some low class hotels for work over the years and finally got bed bugs a few years back. It was winter here so I stripped outside and ran right for the shower. All my clothes and bags were left outside in sub zero temps for over a month and I never did get them in the house.

Now, bed bug bites that I had were always in rows of 2-3 bits. Always in a line everywhere that I had them. The bites you pictured look to me like No-See-Um or sand fly bites. Small bite at first and they itch like crazy. It will take a week or more to heal, the swell up, ooze a clear liquid and REALLY itch. Just my 2 cents worth.


I have nothing clever to put here.

Absorbine junior - instant relief for bed bug and chigger bites. I have also been told it works well on ringworm also.

I got into a bad batch of chiggers several years ago running beagles after dark, we had to wade through tall wet grass to catch the dogs. I had a solid ring around both ankles, the cuff and waistband of my underwear, neck band of t-shirt and several other places. Thought I would go insane w the itching. When you think you can't take it anymore, take as hot a shower as you can stand and let hot water run over the bites. Also, tea tree oil applied helps.

you can see bed bugs but NOT chiggers

the bites look like chiggers to me, just like ive had a few times

I learned to douse well with DEET spray in summer
