    Default Sulphur Powder - Chiggers

    Hi All! I've seen people post on here that putting sulphur powder on your ankles and clothing will help ward off chiggers. I have been to walgreens and the big sports stores and have not been able to find it! Any suggestions on where I should look for this good ole smelly stuff!? Thanks!!

    Hey Mel,
    I was doin some searchin for sulphur powder and the one place that I found that sells it in powder form is this magic wicca website.
    This says not to use it on the body so I don't know if its the same kinda stuff or what....

    New Update...I also read that you can get it at most pharmacies.
    Probably have to ask a pharmacist about it or something.

    if you cant seem to find it, I know that avon skin so soft works for chiggers.
    Music, is food for the soul. I hope each of us finds something special in this short journey together.

    No problem Mel!

    Ok I'm really not a chigger scientist or anything, but I've just been
    reading online (I've never really dealt with chiggers so I'm trying to save my skin) and I've read that regular insect repellent with Deet will work for chiggers as long as you continue to apply it every 4 hours or so.
    Just in case you need the easy way out.

    Most old time pharmacies have it. Look in the area that has essential oils. I know that old corner local pharmacy has it as well as the price chopper pharmacy. I live in Leavenworth, KS BTW.
