In brief: Chigger bites
Chigger bites usually heal on their own within one to two weeks.
In the meantime, control itching with an over-the-counter anti-itch cream, such as Hydrocortisone cream. Consult your doctor if your skin appears infected or if the bites seem to be spreading to other parts of your body.
