What are jiggers?
A jigger is an extremely small flea that burrows into a person's skin, latches onto blood vessels, and lays eggs. These eggs then hatch and mature, leading to an infestation. Within days, jiggers swell over 1,000 times its size, leading to painful swelling, itching, infection, and in severe cases, amputation or loss of life.
