How do I get rid of chiggers on my body?

Immediate soapy bath

Chiggers
The Missouri Dept. of Conservation says chiggers are baby mites that can only bite through areas of thinner, tender skin (so chiggers like women & children). Chiggers bite to inject saliva to dissolve flesh and eat it up. They do not suck blood nor burrow into the skin. Once scratched, the chigger falls off easily, but the site swells, and itches a lot. A scrubby, soapy bath washes away chiggers.

Can u still get toxic mega colon if ur on treatment for c diff? Or will treatment prevent that

C. difficile

Colon
The answer depends upon your response to medications. There are strains of Cl. difficile that are resistant to medications used to treat this condition, and toxic megacolon may occur secondary to the severity of infection encountered prior to institution of therapy. You need to keep in close touch with your treating doctor.

Can laser photocoagulation be used to treat macular degeneration? I'm 65 and was recently diagnosed with macular degeneration. I want to do whatever I can to prevent myself from going blind. Is laser photocoagulation a safe treatment to cure my condition?

Not really

Macular_degeneration
Modern treatment of macular degeneration involves the use of laser photocoagulation less and less. Most people have dry macular degeneration which does not require surgical intervention. For those with the wet form, drugs are used much more than lasers today. Regardless of the treatment, we cannot cure macular degeneration currently. We can only manage it.

How do I get rid of the chiggers on my skin?

Should be gone

Skin
chiggers should bite and release, and not stay adherent to your skin. if there is evidence insect is still attached i would be concerned it is something else such as a tick. to treat the bite use hydrocoritonse and take an antihistamine. if still uncomfortable see your dermatologist for prescription strength treatments.
