In brief: Chigger bite

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.

In brief: Chigger bite symptom

Pronounced itching is the most common symptom.The area of the bite may be reddened, flat, or raised; sometimes it resembles a pustule or blister. The itch is due to the presence of the stylostome and usually is most intense within 1-2 days after the bite.
The itching persists for several days, and complete resolution of the skin lesions can take up to two weeks.
