Any natural, home remedies for chigger bites?

I have about five or six chigger bites on my lower back and they itch! I've been taking Zyrtec to prevent an allergic reaction and rubbing hydrocortisone cream on the bites but they still itch badly. Are there any home remedies anyone has found that could possibly reduce the itch? (don't say nail polish--I researched on that and it is a myth.)

Meat tenderizer draws out the poison. You can try that.

Yeah, my roommate told me about it! So I'm learning something new, too. Thumbs up me if it works!

Some good home remedies for chigger bites are calamine lotion, petroleum jelly, cool water and soapy water. If you notice any sort of discoloration in the surrounding area, then you should consult a doctor immediately.
