Chigger Bites Home Remedy Comments

1 Comment for the Chigger Bites Home Remedy


Went camping and got 70 bites all over my abdomen. Apparently they like where seams of clothes lie and wrinkles where you sweat. I spent two days of hell until I figured out what kind of bug bit me and found this site. Nail polish did NOT work at all, however salt water did. I put salt water on each bite and by morning they were much smaller. Still itched, but I didn't feel like I was going to crawl out of my skin. Took a bath filled with regular salt and bath salt, soaked for about 30 minutes. Then coated each with witch hazel (pharmacy section of store, near rubbing alcohol). The bites are now HALF the size they were and barely itch at all!!! Oh sweet relief!!!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!! The salt water bath worked almost immediately and adding the Witch Hazel gave my daughter great relief. Easy, effective and highly recommended by my daughter and myself (a R.N.)
