Chigger Bites Home Remedy Comments

2 Comments for the Chigger Bites Home Remedy


Old Army way of dealing with Chiggers is prevention. A simply way to avoid chigger bites is to rub a homemade lotion containing powder/flour of sulfur (10% by volume to lotion) and any kind of cheap skin lotion (coconut lotion from the dollar store). Place ingredients in a mixing bowl. Mix them together with a cake mixer until uniformed and apply to every inch of your body. Chiggers, Ticks, and any kind of mite hates sulfur and have so since recorded time. I have used this for 30 years for both Chiggers and Deer Ticks and works everytime. (Caution: Do not use if allergic to sulfur...duh)

Does this remedy make you smell like rotten eggs? I mean, I know you're mixing it with lotion, but still.

Another solution, wash yourself with sulphur soap BEFORE going out into the yard, woods, etc. It doesn't have a strong odor, but apparently leaves a residue of sulphur on your skin and the chiggars should leave you alone.

Just do a search for sulphur soap - there are quite a few suppliers.
