Yellow Fly Bite / Treatment
Ok .... so I got bit on the ankle by one of those evil yellow flies! Back a couple of bites ago, I used the onion method on the bite and it worked beautifully. But unfortunately it isn't working for me anymore. My whole foot (bottom included) plus up my leg swelled up into this ginormous elephant looking foot and I could barely walk. Nothing was working on it -- it just kept getting larger, more painful, and torturously itchy!
So, a friend of mine saw it and said she could help. She applied this healing mud very thickly all around the swollen area. It felt so nice and cool and immediately stopped the itch. I did this before bed, let it stay on for about 30 minutes, rinsed. After rinsing, I could tell a difference. But when I woke up this morning, the swelling was significantly down and it hasn't been itchy all day! It's still swollen but nothing like it was. I plan on doing another treatment this evening and fully expect that it will be healed by tomorrow.
It turns out that our friend has just opened a new business in SoWal. And since I am feeling so blessed that she helped end my suffering, I wanted to give her & her new business a shout out. Please pass along her information to anyone you think could benefit from her services. And feel free to tell her the 2bohemians sent you!

I'm not trying to pee on anyone's parade, but as a recent victim of a Yellow Fly bite the mud wouldn't have done a thing for me. If you start feeling faint, the bite swells like that, you have trouble breathing, hives, or any other reaction not considered normal head to a doctor. The one I saw literally saved my life and I'm forever grateful.

Fortunately I was not having those serious of symptoms, and the mud has been amazing --- taking away all of the pain & itching and reducing the swelling. Not saying this kind of treatment would be for everyone .... just sharing my own personal experience while trying to show a little appreciation for a new business in town.

A typical yellow fly bite should be fine w/ some ice and maybe some anti-itch/anti-histamine meds.
Anything beyond a welt at the bite site needs medical attention - especially if you are experiencing such an extreme reaction.

I have found that alchol, and bactine work very well. Also, no itching.

Glad the clay treatment I suggested for you worked well. I know the acupuncture helped with swelling as well. Normal bite symptoms can usually last up to two weeks so I am glad to help with that aspect.

Glad to see you have joined the SoWal community. Thank you so much for your healing treatments. The clay took all of the pain and the itching away that is really the worst part of the bite for me personally. And you will be happy to know that after receiving the acupuncture, all of the swelling is gone -- I can see my foot again !! It was my first time with the needle and it was a very positive experience. Perhaps we can talk about some sort of maintenance program in the future for the other bohemian in the family.
