Dc came home from a wedding this weekend with itchy heads. Dd had bites on her arm and back about 7. When I examined ds he had little red spots all over his scalp. Both heads were itchy . I treated all of us for nits today but do you think it could have been midgie bites?

Nits would leave eggs glued into the hair I think. Little clear cases about 1mm in length, particularly around the ears.
