Over the years, I have developed many allergies and intolerance to all sorts of things. From pollen to different foods – and especially bug bites.
For example, mosquito bites cause some very angry and large welts where I’ve been bitten. Naturally, these are intensely itchy and I have to try everything in my power NOT to scratch them to avoid infection or further irritation.
However, another pest that attacked me during the early part of summer while I was on a run was chiggers, or scientifically known as trombiculid mites. Chiggers are actually a type of microscopic arachnid that burrows into your skin and lives off of your skin cells. Their waste is what causes the intense itching and swelling reaction.
There are many different ways folks try to treat their chigger bites, with remedies such as clear fingernail polish to help suffocate the mites– however, when it comes to soothing the itch, I tried one product that I can confidently stand by and is part of my ‘allergy kit’.
Pictured here, is my right ankle. You can see some irritation and swell on the inside of the ankle where the mites burrowed in.
After being frustrated and feeling miserable because of my intense reaction with nothing seeming to help, I decided to give Naturasil Bite & Itch Relief a try. The 100% natural blend of essential oils can be applied easily and liberally, and gave me instant relief from the sometimes borderline painful itching!
The best part is – that it soothed my itching and relieved some swelling over time as well! I was able to focus on work much easier without any incessant frustrating itch, and was able to get back to my usual fitness routine within a day or two after because of the dramatic relief!
Pictured on the right is showing just how much swelling I was dealing with as my body reacted to the mites burrowing and making themselves cozy in my skin.
So if you’re like me and have mild to more severe reactions to bug bites – don’t hesitate to try Naturasil Bite & Itch Relief! You can rest assured that you will get amazing relief while not having to resort to steroid-based creams that don't do much for the itching. I’m a lifetime fan of this incredible product!
Also, don't forget to pick up some of the Naturasil Sulfur-Lavender Soap to help treat and soothe your skin. This all-natural medicated soap really helped to speed up the treatment of the chiggers and kept my skin healthy and clean, reducing the risk of infection or prolonged need for treatment!
