I thought it was too early in the season for these little pest. Well, I thought wrong. Friday at work I ended up getting into a bed of "Chiggers!"
Oh, the itching all around my ankles and a few behind the knee area. I am using Chiggerex Plus. It is highly recommended from medical site and from the Pharmacists.
But......Oh, how it itches!!!!!!!
A real nuisance and when I was a kid, I'd pick berries and get chiggers. Nothing worse than chigger bites below the belt on the family jewels.
I know NOTHING 'bout that! hahaaa
Yeah we used to go berry-picking too, as kids; we lived out in the country and were always in the woods or fields. (sigh) nostalgia just hit me.......
Yeah, I had them there in third grade. I cried when mom drowned them in alcohol. I moved North where we don't ever see them and people here know nothing of them.
As a kid I used to get chiggers every summer.
Yeah it's irritating.
Sometimes I think itching can be as bad as a wound!
As far as over-the-counter remedies, I use that maximum strength clear Calagel; seems to work pretty good for insect bites, etc.
Haven't tried the Chiggerex Plus; hope it works!
So far the lotions are working a few hours at a time.
And...there were dew berries along the area where I was. Dang it...I should have at least gotten some berries for all this itching. lol Could have made a cobbler.
Heck we've just come into the season. They are ruthless. Horse flies are out bad, driving our livestock crazy. Hit near 100 today. Summer's here, chiggers & all!
I'm still nursing tick bites I got back the first part of May. They still itch!
I also hate tick bites. Especially "seed ticks!" Growing up in the country in southwest Arkansas ticks and chiggers were common every summer. I have been lucky for decades here in central Arkansas until this past Friday. lol And I was at work when I got them.
Maybe I should turn in a "worker's comp" ticket. lol let them pay for the lotion.
I had a "chigger attack" when I was visiting friends in Texas. I didn't even know there was such a thing. Nasty, nasty, nasty and they have no sense of social propriety whatsoever! Tree Tea Oil helped a good deal.

How do you get rid of bedbug bites?My doctors say that a bedbug bite is painless and no treatment is required for it. Recently I got several bedbug bites on my legs. They are so itching that I feel so terrible. How do you get rid of bedbug bites? What kind of medical treatment should I take?
