Sandflies are tiny insects, only a couple of millimeters in length. They live in various habitats.  But the one’s we’re concerned with are those that enjoy life on quiet beaches in Australia. Enter a class of minuscule flies under the family Ceratopogonidae, better known in America as...

Its anti-inflammatory and analgesic nature helps in dealing with the swelling and pain encountered after an insect bite. Coconut oil, when applied to bug bites, forms a thin layer on the affected area of the skin which helps protect it from any bacteria.

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...
