I hate chiggers!!! I have avoided those little devils all summer until a week ago. Apparently a few hitch-hiked on my socks and made their way to my ankles. I used everything I could think of to stop the itch and then I saw this idea somewhere (can't remember, that's happening a lot lately) and thought why not try it!
And what was this new anti-itch miracle? TOOTHPASTE! You read this right; Toothpaste! I rubbed a little dot of my toothpaste on the itch and it stopped immediately. After a few hours it would wear off but when I reapplied it, the itch stopped. This was amazing!
I haven't tried it for mosquito bites or other itches, but it worked on those flesh eating critters called chiggers!
What are some of your best remedies for itch?
