Just so you all know, chiggers do not actually burrow into the skin. When they bite, they inject something that makes you itch. Putting nail polish, alcohol, bleach, etc. will only irritate the skin and does not help alleviate the itching. Best things you can do is take benedryl or off-brand version and apply anti-itch creams. The creams that include an analgesic work best. Look up more info on chiggers online. Only bad thing is the itching and possible infection from itching due to breaks in the skin from scratching too much and too hard.
