What is biting me?

Can you guess what's biting me? I've been getting a few extremely itchy red bumps, very much like mosquito bites, but they are not mosquito bites because they follow the pattern that chigger bites do: they're not on exposed parts of my skin, but instead under my clothing. It seems that something small is leaping onto me and then crawling until it finds itself confined by clothing, then settling down to bite. The bites aren't like chigger bites, though. [more inside]

Is my frostbite/frostnip healing as expected, or should I get treatment?

I have stupidly given myself a case of frostbite or frostnip by leaving a coldpack on a small area of bare skin for several hours. The worst appears to have reversed, but I really don't like the big welt that has appeared. What should I do next? [more inside]
