    Default Turkey Mites

    If anyone has had turkey mites how did you get rid of them, and stop the itching.

    Lice Shampoo that can be purchased at Walmart. Use it as body wash, suds up and leave a few minutes. Wash off and you should feel the results shortly.

    Probably the good ole chigger, Use some deet before you go out and get a good shower when you get back in, should prevent them, but if you already have them, well good luck, I have tried several old fashioned remedies but nothing works 100% of the time.
    My opinion is neither copyrighted nor trademarked, and it's competitive. If you like, I'll trade for one of yours.

    Yeah, been there done that.....the doctor said tick larvae. Soaking in clorox water in the tub helps with the itch and kills some of them but you smell like bleach for days.

    I thought that the so called "turkey mites" were actually deer ticks.

    As I've mentioned on here several times before; athletes foot cream will stop the itch almost immediatly and the bites will heal much faster.
