Hello my name is***** am a board-certified physician and I am happy to help you. Chigger bites themselves, as a rash, do not spread per se, but if the chiggers themselves are still in clothing or bedding or on the body they can continue to bite causing new rashes.
Can I answer any other questions for you?

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
