Sand fly bite?

Treatment:

Stringio
Sand fly bites need to be treated immediately to counteract the bacteria, or venom, that has just been deposited underneath the skin. Mixing one part hydrogen peroxide with one part betadine solution and dissolve the scab that has formed. This will reveal the wound underneath that also needs to be cleaned with this solution, after which antibacterial ointment must be applied. If worsens, see a doc

Seeking medical

Extremity-lower-foot
Attention is never bad or wrong, afterall, you do have a problem. Alternatively,l if you feel comfortable using a sterile instrument you can pop the blister allow it to drain and place some antibiotic ointment to the site and bandage it. Change daily and monitor the wound and yourself for any fever or signs of redness or swelling by the bites.

You may have no problem with this, but if you have an allergy or you think you do, my advice is to get to an ER ASAP. They will give you epinephrine so you don't go into anaphylactic shock, which can close your airway and kill you. After this episode is over, you might want to see your doctor and get an EpiPEN, which is a shot of epinephrine you can give yourself quick if this happens again.

Are there treatment guidelines for allergic reaction to insect bites?

Insect bites

Allergic
Treatment will depend on the severity of your condition. It is important to note that no specific antivenom is available to counteract the poison injected by the insect. The majority of problems requiring medical treatment result from the allergic reaction to the sting. Many of the complications from an allergic reaction respond well to various medications-when given in time.

How can you treat sand fly bites on the skin?

Sand Fleas

Skin
The most important thing about insect bites is that you get away from the insect, first of all! Secondly, this is very important to make sure that these are not infected. Frequently sand flea bites are infected. This determination should be made by your dermatologist. After this time it may help to use some over-the-counter hydrocortisone. But you should first have the diagnosis made accurately
