ditto on the bleach.
meat tenderizer on the moistened
area.
spit on a clean penny then put
spit side on area.
split aloe vera leaf on area.
split prickly pear cactus pad on area.
(with caution or it'll be worse than the sting)


never used bleach on chiggers.
always used homemade lye soap
in a hot bath.

i'll stick with the lye soap bath.
i usually get chiggers where i wouldn't
want any nail polish :-[


i can just see having nail polish in those
areas, and having a heart attack, or something
the like and what the emt's would say. . . .
"no wonder the dumba$$ died! !
he has nail polish all over his$#^&*@

if it wasn't such a pain (npi) to
harvest, i'd gather some to eat everyday.
a split pad works good on scrapes and scratches too,
about as good as aloe.

sauted like zoo-kini squash.
they sell the pads here in the meskin
grocery stores-nopales (no-pol-lez)
and i've seen an info-mercial where they
sell prickly pear juice as the new cure-all
for everything from stiff joints to e.d. to
cancer.
if you can get some of the fruits, they make
a durn good jelly.
otherwise, i mow 'em down with the bushhog.

Home remedies are great but one of these days it's going to cost you dearly. My dad had been stung by wasps many times and he never had any reaction to it at all....until the last one. What you don't know is that every time you are stung, the venom never leaves your body. When conditions are right, all of the venom can react just like everything that has ever stung you over your life has now hit you all at once. At least that's how they explained it to us after my dads funeral. He was only stung once so you don't have to be swarmed with stings. If we had an Epipen, he would have survived, but we didn't know any better. You can also carry Benedryl with you but you have ONLY 3 minutes to get it in your system. After that, you'll choke to death. And that my friends is not a fun thing to go thru. Be smart, keep an Epipen handy when in the country or just keep it in the glove box. Benedryl is a good back up plan too but you have to have access to it. In the med cabinet at home guarantees you a ride in a hearse. You certainly don't want the family to find out later that your life could have been saved by something so simple. And you need to know, no one is immune.
