A thick layer of clear nail polish suffocates the chiggers in a day or two. I had to peel off the old and put a new layer on a couple of bites the second day as they were still itching. I had over 50 bites on my ankles and legs and the only thing that worked was the thick layer of clear nail polish.

30 bites and nail polish is the true winner! Smeells a bit but it stops them dead in a day and itching stops with it

I have been suffering excruciatingly for a couple of days with chiggers ( about 8 of them on my ankles and legs). I was thinking to myself how I wish to clean the sites and put alcohol or peroxide on each, then open each up with a needle and try pulling them out with tweezers.... I just wanted them gone!!! Was SOooooo painful and beyond itchy! Before going through those measures I thought I'd google for other successful remedies. Of all of my findings, I thought id try the nail polish first!!! All I can say is: YAY!!!! And Thank You!!!!! I just applied a third coat to make sure it sealed them in. OmG! I am Sooo surprised that I REALLY feel relief already!!! As it's still drying!!! I was on hell just a few minutes before. I'm so glad you posted this. It's definately working so far!!! I will try to post a follow-up in a couple days! Thank you!!!!!!!

Nail polish works. Keep applying a fresh layer over each bite until site is healed.

Even though the chiggers don't actually burrow in your skin, the bite is annoying and orchestrated like crazy! I was having to scratch my bites with my keys to make them feel better. My mom told me to put clear polish on them. As soon as I did, of course it had a sting to it, but it takes the itch away, and eventually the bites will go away!!! Best hone remedy ever!!!!

I'VE HAD THEM TWICE THIS YEAR...CLEAR NAIL POLISH TAKES CARE OF IT IN A DAY OR 2. JUST KEEP REAPPLYING AFTER SHOWERS. burns alittle at first, but it works.
