Well 48hrs into these new level of Hell!
Ok here we go......
Once you are sure you have removed all of them. Make sure you use a wash cloth when you shower. I didn't use one and woke up around 2:30/3a.m. in agony; feeling like I was being eaten alive by little specs, about half smaller then this>.
I had never actually seen them before. I am use to the ones that get below the beltline and get really personal. usually go away in a fewfour days.
The majority of these are on my stomach, chest, sides, back, down my backside, and about 20-30 bites on each ankle.

Now the treatment.
shower in cool water with a bottle of 91% Isopropyl alcohol. Punch a small hole in the safety foil so it sprays when squeezed. Pour down the shoulders/chest AND GO TO TOWN try rubbing your skin off with the palms of your hand! use ample amounts of the alcohol and watch getting it on the jewels, it Gets a little warm. Get out and air dry.

For the ointment use clear calamine lotion with Jewelweed.
Take a round bottom plastic tumbler cup.Put a small handful of the leaves(mainly)and flowers(for color) in the cup. Mull with the handle end of a small screwdriver adding a tablespoon of the Calamine. Continue mulling till a consistency of liquid hand soap. Apply with the Screwdriver it will make circles and wont break the skin. This drastically reduces the size of the bites and seems to be drying them up. Atleast the ones that I can reach.
Use BIOFREEZE when it gets to crazy!
I believe with this treatment I can get rid of this sooner then with all the other BS I have read.
Good Luck, Hope this helps.
Try to stay away from the steel wool, even though it sounds so pleasant at this point
