Chiggers, in general, are the juvenile (or larval) form of a specific family of mites and are less than 1/150th of an inch in diameter The reason the bite itches so intensely and for such a long time is because the chigger bite injects saliva into its victim after attaching to their skin. This saliva contains a powerful digestive enzyme that literally dissolves the skin cells it contacts. It is this liquefied tissue, never blood, that the chigger ingests and uses for food
Chiggers start as red bumps on your skin. An itch starts to spread across your body. More hard red welts arrive. From your feet up, and especially at tender locations, a uncontrollable itch takes over.
Chigger Bites pictured here usually start at your feet or ankles and work their way up causeing a very obvious red bumpy rash that itches like crazy.
