Once you realized you’ve been bitten by a chigger, you can remove the chiggers from the skin by taking a shower and scrubbing your whole body with soap. This will also prevent further skin reactions from the chigger bites. If the itching has already started, take a dose of antihistamine or apply a topical hydrocortisone to relieve you from the itching. If these are not available, you can use an ice pack instead. It’s also important to not scratch the skin as it may break. There would be times that the itch would be unbearable, so keep your fingernails short and your hands always clean.
