CHIGGERS!!! >:(

Oh gosh, I went black berry picking a few days ago and now I
have chigger bites ALL OVER my legs, it's disgusting!!
Does anyone have any home remedies or tips how to cure them?

I'm desperate and itching like CRAZY, I scrub my legs really
Hard with soap and water, and then douse them with alcohol and
Dance all over the house!! Heck, I even put some dog shampoo
On my legs as an experiment..LOL!

HELP, HELP, HELP!!!

Never been bitte by chiggers, but I do know a remedy that takes the burn out of fire ant bites. It wouldn't hurt to try! Make a thick paste out of water and meat tenderizer and slather it on!

I also know that apple cider vinegar takes the sting out of a sunburn, maybe that would work?

Good luck!

We use ammonia. If you look at the ingredience of After Bite (an itch relief stuff) its ammonia.
There is also some stuff called Chiggerex that works really well. They sell it at wal mart.

My hubby just had them too.

He put nailpolish on them and took Benadryl.

Chiggerex is what I use. I seem to be a chigger magnet and yes we too have been picking blackberries. I tried the fingernail polish and it didn't work very well for me. ( I couldn't stand the polish and picked it off! :roll: )
