Just call me Itchy and Scratchy in How do I...? Posted September 22, 2003 I had a bad case of chiggers and seed ticks last week, I had only limited success with my own advice (lanacain sunburn gel)!! It helped somewhat, especially at night when I was trying to sleep. I'm going to try that lice shampoo next! I shower vigourously after a trip to the woods and in spite of that I still found live seed ticks on me after two days!!! They are very small and look like a tiny freckle or something. It really grossed me out. I'm going to get that shampoo and bathe with it after an outing. A friend of mine frequently goes with me caching but always waits from a safe distance.
