Allergic reactions from a sandfly bite.
The bite of a sand fly has a different healing period dependent upon the possible factors that caused the infestation at first. The first and foremost factor that determines the intensity of the bite is the sensitivity of the skin of the individual that is the recipient. Most of the skin conditions after the bite are common to many other forms of allergens and their reactions, but throughout the similarity, the sand fly bite is known to last for longer periods of time and develop differently throughout the period of their entirety.
It is standard practice to use natural remedies in the case of singular bites or small clusters. Preference is given to medication in the instance of excessive bites along with a visit to the doctor. Natural remedies are known to work faster on humans by helping to reduce swelling states and thus lessen the itch against the skin.
The allergic reaction bites take up to several weeks to completely heal.
