I have gotten chigger bites twice now, and the itch is horrendous! This last time I got them all over my feet, dozens of them! I tried everything from Vicks Vapo Rub, Oatmeal, Baking Soda, Nail Polish, Oragel, everything I tried, nothing worked. Finally I was so fed up, I soaked my feet in a tub of VERY hot water, about as hot as I could stand, for about 2-3 minutes, it made them itch like crazy and burn....BUT, as soon as I stepped out of the water, my itch was gone! Instant relief! I them applied some aloe vera lotion to soothe. This method lasts about 6-8 hrs!! So if you're suffering, and you know it will be almost a week before the itch stops, just soak in HOT water. It's that easy!
