|Comment||To Jack DeAngelis, Thank you for the link to unknown and mysterious bugs: http://www.livingwithbugs.com/unknown_bug_bites.html. This information helped me determine the bugs that bit me were the Bird Mite. Now that I have applied Benedryl Ointment and orally taken Benedryl, the bites have calmed down to the point of helping to identify which mite bit me. I looked up all of the biting mites and the Bird Mite fits the description and how they got on me. We have maple trees where typically birds build nests in and these trees were right over where I was washing my vehicle when I began getting bit. I actually saw these bugs on me so the oval shape of the Bird Mite matches what I saw. Thank you so much for your help.|
