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.

Anyone know how to make a bar of soap out of those little bits of soap that are left behind?We end up with little half chips of Dial soap in the shower that aren't big enough for anything. Does anyone have ideas how to make those into another bar?
