Chiggers.  The dermatologist said it was chiggers.  He had me tell him what I did late last week and I told him about digging up monkey grass and putting it in the truck. one clod of grass at a time.  Each clod was heavy and I had to brace it against my body to lift up to the truck bed level.  He said that is where the chiggers mostly jumped aboard, that and running up my arms.  That is where most the red bumps are around my pants line and my arms.
He also said he would like to dispel the belief that chiggers burrow up in your skin.  He said once they bite you they fall off.

I was going to ask, "What does "dispel" mean?"  but didn't.
