fly bites

fly bites

bites that may be caused by species of deerflies, horseflies, blackflies, or sand flies. Such bites produce a small painful wound with swelling caused by substances in the insect's saliva that are injected beneath the surface of the skin. Emergency treatment for fly bites includes cleaning the site and placing ice on it. The bite should be monitored for possible infections, as biting flies often transmit diseases.
