Chiggers like the tight spots like under socks and waist band areas. They will swell like heck when scratched.

I've had chiggers bad before and they look like what you have. Never had bedbugs. If it's chiggers cover the bite area with clear nail polish. That helps with the itching but it'll take a while to heal.

Try one of those ammonia itch pens on the bites. They help a lot.
Chiggers bites usually are concentrated in the tight places in clothing. Around the ankles, behind the knees and all round the elastic of underwear.
I caught a good dose of them last week. A good dose being 50-75 bites.
You can get chiggers in any grass and especialy if it is in a damp area

Looks like chiggers to me. I got into them so bad one time squirrel hunting. I had them from my neck to my ankles. It looked like you shot me with #9 shot. It itched so bad for two weeks and I was at the point of getting a wire brush and bullet to see which one was going to give me relief.

I don't know if this will help with chigger itch but it puts an end to mosquito itch immediately and forever.

I you're a smoker ( lets hope not) get a ciggy burning and hold it as close to the bite as possible without touching the skin. Hold it as long as you can stand it but don't burn yourself. A match works too if you don't smoke. Foolproof on mosquitoes. Give it a try

SE Kentucky you say, i would say you got chiggers or a very light dose of seed ticks. lots of people get in thousands of seed ticks but think ther covered up in chiggers. seen them so bad guys have had to scrape there skin with a pocket knife.

The key to avoiding bed bugs is sleeping tight.

If you suspect bed bugs ....sleep with the lights on ..............unless you're in a 10 @ 2 & a 2 @ 10 situation !

Your pics and the description of the symptoms screams chiggers to me. The misery does not lessen until your immune system carries off the invading remnants of what they injected you with.
If you have gone into an area where you know that there are chiggers, seed ticks, and other ticks, and you did not douse yourself with deet while buck nekkid prior, when you get home, mix 50/50 bleach and water in a small bowl. Take a warsh rag and cover yourself head to toe until your skin starts to tingle, then take a shower.
Works every time. It seems to take a while for chiggers to do their damage, so you have a while to stop them when you get home.
