Question: My son was bitten by something but he is not sick. It is getting bigger though. I am looking for photos. I think it was chiggers. Do they have a lot of chiggers in North XXXXXXX as we are new here?

Brief Answer:
Tick bite. Requires medical attention.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have checked the details as well as the attached image. The redness is typical of a tick bite and requires immediate medical attention. Please take him to the ER at the earliest.

Cannot say if there are a lot of chiggers in the place where you are. But even one tick is sufficient. Please do not delay taking him to the doctors.
