I recently tried this and it works quite well. First spread a thick layer of hydrocortizone cream on the bites. Wait for this to dry as much as possible. Next apply an alcohol based hand sanitizer to the area. A product like Germ-X works well, but any gelled alcohol product will work. This provides almost instant relief because of the cooling alcohol. Next, and this is important because it suffocates the chiggers, apply whipped wax to the area. I found a hair product called Nolita which is a creamy whipped wax. Finally, don't touch the area. Within a day the chiggers will be dead and you won't itch.
