How did I get bug bites while swimming in a lake?


Answer by  diva25 (4016)

Lakes are not very clean, so that probably has a lot to do with it. You may even have hives from doing so. Showering after swimming is needed.

You likely didn't ... it is most probable the those are Chiggers bites received from being in the grass around the shore of the lake. Chigger bites can be treated by putting rubbing alcohol on them for a few days.

mosquitoes are very attracted to water. I would think most likely that bit you and since you were busy with swimming you didn't notice then discovered it later.

also there are lots of diffrent kinds of bugs by lakes so you were most likely busy swimming and dident notice the but until after :)
