I haven't read the other responses so I don't know if anyone has suggested this yet or not, but we use nail polish. Yep! Nail polish! You have to suffocate them to make them die or you will never quit itching. You can either go to the pharmacy and pay for a bottle of something to paint on the chigger bites (they are actually embedded into your skin) or you can go the cheap route and paint them with nail polish. They've been terrible here this year and my husband, along with one of my sons, have already had to be painted. It does work! Paint them tonight and you will feel TONS better tomorrow.
