last week I went out and got a couple dozen baby ticks (the itching sure lasts!), then mosquitoes bit me, and I think I might have some chigger bites from yesterday too.
it's driving me CRAZY!

does anyone know anything for itching? I heard baking soda is good, the thing is (like most things you need) I don't have any right now. And the gel for itching I have doesn't work all that well and is running out.

I got a cure for chiggers, it works everytime. Rub a banana peel on the ticks and chiggers bites. Then take an orange and squeeze the juice on it. Then rub some some tuna on it. Then rub some sardines on them. Repeat this for 14 days and at the end of the 14 day's they will no longer itch. Guaranteed.

Isn't nail polish over the chigger "bites" supposed to take care of it? You can always try some fluid from a Nep pitcher! (Try it!) Good luck with your itchy-scratchies.

Try this lotion called 'Sarna'. It works well to satisfy the itch. For me though, the old stand-by for chigger or mosquito bites was chalomile lotion. Or, like my Dad used to say, "If it itches, then scratch it"

Make it bleed, then put rubbing alcohol on it. Sure it stings for a bit but cures the itch. You do not scar like some people may think.

My mom says that all the people that used to live in her village would put saliva on their mosquito bites. "Use poison against poison!" Somehow, I doubt you'd like to try that.

Benadryl. Stops the itch. If you don't want to go with a systemic like Benadryl...make a paste out of meat tenderiser(like Lawry's Season salt)and apply it to the itchy spots. Works for me!
