i was told that if you wash with rid x let dry on skin use caladryl lotion once dried then use rid x two days from then they will clear up quickly within a day or two after second washing
Aveeno makes a colloidal oatmeal soak used to help itching from poison oak, poison sumac, insect bites and other things. I have found soaking in this GREATLY help reduce itching for chiggers. However, if there are only a few bited confined to feet or ankles, it is much easier to use a small amount of this colloidal oatmeal soak and mix with a little bit of water to make a paste. Apply this to the bites and wrap the feet/ankles with Saran Wrap to help the oatmeal sink into skin and to prevent it from coming off as you walk. Keep on for 15-20 minutes, then remove the Saran Wrap and gently massage area with warm water until you feel a thin film form. Pat dry (do not rub). Stops itching for hours and you can finally fall asleep!
To smuther the chiggers and stop the itching put vics vapor rub on areas affected. The petroleom suffocates them and the methanol relieves itching. You can also mix camphor and phenol in mineral spirits, works wonders.
Use Super Clean (engine cleaner). Take a napkin and dab it into the Super Clean and gently apply to the irritated areas. Follow up with a thourough bath or shower. AVOID PRIVATE AND SENSITIVE AREAS!!!
Dab a little clear nail polish on the chigger bite as soon as you notice it.
For Chigger Bites add 3 cap fulls of concentrated lysol to a full bath tub of water. Take bath in the water.
Get a washcloth wet with warm water. Apply table salt to the wet washcloth. Rub the washcloth on the affected areas of the skin, avoiding the genitals. It may hurt a little, but it will help stop the itching.
