The Best Way to Treat Chigger Bites

1. Hot Shower

Once you are aware of being bitten by chiggers, the first line of defense is a hot shower. This will cause any chiggers on your body to fall off and will minimize skin reactions from the bites.

  1. Use a mild antiseptic soap and gently rub your body thoroughly while showering.
  2. After the shower, thoroughly pat dry your body with a soft towel. Do not rub your body vigorously, as this can lead to rashes and more pain.
  3. Apply some olive oil or a mild moisturizer to keep the skin moisturized.

Note: Do not use very hot water for showering. Also, make sure to wash your clothes in hot water.
