Grass Mites Bites
Address the cause: Taking antihistamines daily is one option -however, additional interventions are important. Though it is impossible to avoid allergens, many physicians will recommend minimizing your exposure to them by using air purifiers, using rugs rather than wall to wall carpeting, using hypoallergenic bedding and minimizing outdoor activities during specific times of the year when pollen counts are high.

Gene & environment: When your genes and the changing environment intreacts, some people would develop allergies. Allergy develops because your immune system has been redirected to react to otherwise innocuous substances such as animal dander, pollen, dust mite, mold, food etc. The stronger a family history of allergic diseases, the more likely you are going to become allergic.

Allergy doc says I am allergic to "dust mites" and all sorts of grass (had skin prick test)- so what am I suppose to do about that other than meds?
Different symptoms: While bug bites can lead to a rash, dust mites (and their fecal pellets) trigger asthma and allergic rhinitis especially at night. Dust mites can trigger eczema in some.

Interesting: Never heard that the skin would be susceptible to insect bites more than someone else's unless the smell of the skin- soaps, colognes, perfumes, etc. Maybe attracts the bugs more. You might try not wearing anything that has a fragrance to it- even washing clothes in fragrance free detergent and dryer sheets. Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Where you got them.: Chiggers live in grass, brush, hay and other green spaces but they're active only in moderate temperatures (60 -90+ degrees.) Sand mites (fleas) live in coastal, sandy soils and are more heat-tolerant. Both are very tiny and both itch like crazy. OTC non-sedating antihistamines and cortisone creams can ease the symptoms. Your pharmacist can help you find the right medications. Read more

Trombiculidae: Itching can be helped with topical corticosteroids and antihistamines as well as hot showers or baths. In cases of severe dermatitis or secondary infection with chigger bites, a doctor should be consulted. Some apply petroleum jelly or painting nail polish over the chigger bite under the false belief that the nail polish will suffocate the chiggers under the skin, but it does not work that way.
