I live in south-central Missouri, on a cattle ranch, and I get into chiggers at least twice a year. I am sensitive to the bite and have a really hard time, itching day and night and marked around my ankles and lower legs with nasty-looking sores.

The kids in the area told me to take a hot soapy shower, then 'scratch'em 'til they're raw, put hairspray on them, and get ready to dance'.

I don't know if the bitesgo away any faster, but it does stop the itching.

Can't recall if it was chiggers or crab lice, but someone told me to try some kerosene. Not a good thing around your crouch. Ice packs helped the most.
