0 Comments for the Chiggers Home Remedy


After a wonderful evening on a boat house in the swamps of Florida I woke up with a familiar itch. Chiggers! Of course never saw the little the good wine and conversation was flowing...
I made a semi watery paste of baking soda and tap water, spread generously over all the bites, let dry. Then I showered with cool water and regular bar soap to rinse the dried baking soda. We have this Japanese nylon scrubby wash cloth for bathing/exfoliation,.... well, I scrubbed a few layers of skin off....not till I bled....I think just a few layers is fine for adequate penetration....and I happen to have a natural dog shampoo which contains eucalyptus, applied this generously for about 3 minutes. After the cool shower, towel of and I applied eucalyptus lotion directly to the bites...AHHHHHHH
Slept like a baby..
Our first post here and we wanted to share and hope it helps someone out there get some relief...
