Does anyone know of a remedy for yellow fly bites and whether it is normal for them to get this bad. Its not an allergic reaction, but more like an infection from them. I feel like Howard Carter getting bit by a bug outside tuts tomb. I have five or six just on one leg and they have formed large "plaques" about the size of my palm for each bite. The tissue is hard and itches deep inside. The leg is hot to the touch and I've been nauseaus, had bad bad headaches, and chills and feel I've got some kind of disease from the suckers.
I got one bite two years ago and I couldn't walk, my foot swelled up and got really hot and hurt bad.
Is this normal for these suckers? I don't get this sick from a scorpion or spider bite! Do these flies carry disease? I'm glad I'm on antimalarials!!!! I can't believe how bad they are. Any home remedy?
