Jiggers

jiggers

Jiggers are pesky little fleas that like to burrow into human skin and lay egg sacs which cause itching and pain as they grow, necessitating that you dig them out.  Digging them out can be painful–you use a combination of a safety pin, tweezers, and nail clippers.  I enlighten you to this little lesson because we have had an infestation of jiggers lately, affecting even the NHICF students that were here!  Syd has pulled more than 10 out of his feet, and he has pulled 9 out of Krissy’s feet and 4-5 out of mine!  We are just grateful that Malachi has not gotten any yet.  Not quite sure how we would keep him still enough to get the job done.
