We have flea problem in our house. One of our family members got some flea bites around their ankles and those are definitely flea bites (red and swollen without blisters). Yesterday she got bites around her waist and they seemed different (three to four blistered bumps and they crusted after popped unintentionally, not sure what's inside those blisters).

Toss in chiggers.

Chiggers and others love to burrow under elastic-type areas like sock tops, waistbands and nestle in.

Are you in a particularly natural area? Are you or family members outdoors in nature a lot?

I got the same thing around my belly and up side.
I googled fea bites compared to bed bugs compared to mosquito bites.
Couldn't tell for sure.....they were gone though within 8 days.

Without seeing the blisters, sounds like Shingles to me


Is it painful?

If they're in clusters and itch, they're bedbug bites. And you don't want bedbugs, either.

Saw some pictures in google images and they looked similar with those bumps. Anyway, those bumps start crusting but they're not totally gone.
