    I've Either Got Poison Ivy Or Chigger Bites.

    My mom, a nurse, thinks it's "scavey" bites (which is chiggers. seriously, I've never heard of scavey's) because they blisters are clustered around the back of my neck, and another ptch on my chest with like, two blisters leading down to that.

    My mother-in-law and wife think it's poison Ivy, because it grows around here, and it's in bloom.

    The blisters (red-ish bumps with small water "pimples" on them) for either one look the same in mild cases of either one, and both treatments say to use calimne lotion.

    So ... fuck all. ugh.

    I look like a diseased pod person.

    I thought we got rid of chiggers when, I don't know, the electric guitar was invented.

    My girlfriend has been waking up with bug bites. I've gotten a few but I don't taste good.

    Chiggers? Like ticks?

    Mites.



    But my wife and mother-in-law are convinced it's poison ivy after seeing this photo of PI:

    This is useless without pictures...


    chiggers - you have to put fingernail polish on them (or chigger-rid stuff you get at the drugstore). My husband had 'em a few years back from leaving his bathing suit on the ground overnight while we were camping. I won't go into the details of where he got them...

    scabies - I dunno, never had 'em.

    Poison ivy rash comes from the sap - itches like hell (I have it now, I know it's ivy because I pulled it out wif me bare hands, then washed good afterwards and had only a few bumps pop up). Great pics here of poison ivy rash:
