Couldn't find what you looking for?


I have been bitten by about 70billion chiggers and would like to know what to do for the itch?


Step 1 - Wash the area around the bite with hot soapy water as soon as possible.

Step 2 - Scrub the area with a wash cloth to help remove other chiggers that might be on the skin in the area of the bite.

Step 3 - Apply ice to treat minor swelling in reaction to the bite. Apply ice for 10 minutes; remove it for 10 minutes; repeat until the swelling goes down.

Step 4 - Apply an over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream to the area of the bite to treat itching.

Step 5 - Take an oral antihistamine to reduce the allergic reaction that your body is having to the bite if you're still itchy.
