Chigger Bites



I'm not used to chigger bites this late in the year. I never thought the chiggers would be active after the cool days we've been having lately. Although I'm not aware of any safe home remedies to keep chiggers off your clothing, there are several home remedies for chigger bites. Using lye soap is one of the best remedies for chigger bites. Washing with lye soap will relieve the itch. I don't know if it has been proven to actually kill the chiggers, but I haven't noticed any more bites after washing thoroughly with it. Some people use a bleach bath to relieve the itch of chigger bites. I'm guessing that this would probably take care of the chiggers themselves, but again I can find no studies to support it. Another home remedy for relieving the itch of chiggers is an oatmeal bath. Some other common household items used in the relief of itchy chigger bites are vaseline, VapoRub, calamine lotion, hydrocortisone and baby oil.
