Necol from VA

I had at least 100 chigger bites all over my body, including feet, behind the knees, genitals, name it! I read all the different advice on this site and tried several. Nailpolish, hairspray and heat didn't work at all. Using Desitin or Butt Paste worked some, but the cream was rubbing off on all my furniture and making a mess. Same with the Vick's VapoRub. I finally found HOURS of blessed relief with Listerine Cool Mint. I soaked a washcloth with the Listerine and doused my entire body. It stung a bit on the bites I had scratched open, but my relief was instantaneous! I haven't itched all day! If you are as desperate as I was was, try this. It worked wonders on me!

thank you soooo much...the cool mint was awesom


I found relief from itching with Jock itch ointment. I figured if it was good enough for my husbands jock itch it should work on my bites. Those buggers really itch.


Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. I used freshburst Listerine and it worked like a charm. I do not itch for the first time in 4 days. Thank you so much


Worked for me thank you sooooo much. Speaking of desperate measures I was willing to drink bleach put myself out of my own misery after itching for a week straight and no sleep lol. I actually used generic listerine and it worked amazing last night at 230 in the morning. Instant needed relief


this work great i soaked a wash cloth in listrine and set it on the chigger bites for several min.
