In brief: Get Chiggers off

Your skin asap by rubbing w a cloth or showering in warm water w soap.
Chiggers are very easily removed so you don't need to use toxic chemicals to remove them. You can apply Hydrocortisone cream or take oral antihistamines for itching. There are products you can buy specifically to treat chiggers. Chigger bites usually resolve in 1 to 2 weeks w/o treatment. Get medical eval for infection.
