    Haven't been around any ticky areas but somebody said the words "poison ivy" the other day and a patch broke out on my arm. Seriously, I was walking through some grass about 50 yards from the woods and got it.

    I've got a chigger in the bend of my knee that seems to be doing really well for himself. Seems to have set up a permanent home.

    I'll give him the bend of the knee if he won't migrate northward.

    Athletes foot cream stops the itch almost immediately and helps them heal much faster.

    Diesel and gas works very good for repeling ticks and chiggers. I'm in tall weeds/thickets everyday and as soon as possible give my boots a rub down and pant legs.

    Guess it might not work for hunting but it has never stopped me from seeing plenty of deer at work.
     
  15. you can crush an aspirin and add a little water to make a paste and apply it to the bites it will take some of the swelling and itch out of it. Or just benydryl cream.
