Not chigger blisters: Could be that what you think are chigger blisters really aren't. Chigger bites can take up to 6 weeks to "heal", meaning resolve where you can't see where the bite occurred. If the spots persist, see your physician.

That is the reported: Norm. However, i never blistered when i got them. Chigger's bites often have a small red in the center of a welt & occur in areas where skin is tender like the crotch, armpits, beltline, backs of knees, ankles. They are extremely itchy.

Keep it clean: Get chiggers off your skin asap by rubbing w a cloth or showering in warm water w soap. You can apply Hydrocortisone cream or take oral antihistamines for itching. There are products you can buy specifically to treat chiggers. Chigger bites usually resolve in 1 to 2 weeks w/o treatment. Get medical eval for infection.
