For the last three summers my daughter has gotten sores on her head. Just 2 to 3, but they refuse to go away. The dr gave me some antibiotic cream to put on them, which at least keeps them from getting infected like the first summer. Every summer, after months of the same sore refusing to heal, it has taken oral antibiotics, sometimes more than one round, to get them to go away. The dr says they are chigger bites, and they do appear about the time the rest of us get bit by chiggers, but no one else I know has ever been bitten on the head. Has anyone else had the same thing happen? I'm a little skeptical of his explanation.
