JP, oh what terrible stuff, I do truly feel sorry for ya, even though you said I was  old, smiling.  I wondered when you spoke about caladryl.  I know now what you meant, only we call it calamine lotion, must be the same active ingredient.  I am on a quest now to find out about chiggers, sounds terrible.  Oh well, do take care, all will be well.  Have that most wonderful day, the health to go with it, and love our life.  Cindi

I got tore up with chiggers two weeks ago while visiting in Alabama.

long pants boots the works and I was polka dotted.  Hundreds of bites mostly on my ankles and waist line.  Other bites in spots unimaginably uncomfortable.  I don't know how they got inside my cloths.  Turns out after some research the itching is in fact the flesh eating enzyme injected by the chigger and there is really nothing known that works.  By the time you start itching the chigger is long gone on his way to a full grown mite with 8 legs instead of only 6 at the chigger stage.  You basically have to just use something to stop the itching while the enzyme is absorbed.  Up to 2 weeks or more.  I got bit up 16 days ago and still not completely bump free but getting much better.

I tried several products but regular cortizone cream worked best for me. 

They are horrible little creatures.  They itch as much as a fire ant and their attack is even more stealthy.

redbugs don't bother me but there's fleas all over the property and I must look like 2 for 1 all you can eat at denny's to them. They ignore my wife completely if I'm within 10 feet of her.
be happy and make others happy.

Annett
says the hotest shower. makes me think
ten years ago got stuck by a catfish after while that was painful.
darned uncomfertable.
found the remadie though soak in hot water. worked like a charm fast too

think Annett or Kathy P said for the itch, like after many bee stings.
use vagisill. go figure
after the night i got hit many times (unbearable) I'll keep some on hand.

The vagisil is recommended by Kathy. I have never tried it.

But the hot water treatments work really well with itching.
