I moisten baking soda and place on the bite. Benedryl or an allergy pill helps keep swelling down. Ice also does wonders with the swelling,pain and itching

What is treatment for deer fly bite?

It is true that Deer Fly bites are painful. The tissues around the bite are affected causing major soreness to the touch, swelling, and constant itchiness. In bad reactions, like mine, edema sets in. Time is the main factor to get rid of a deer fly bite but to tolerate the pain and itchiness associated with it you can: - Apply ice to it as soon as possible after you are bitten. - Put Calamine lotion directly on the spot. - Put your hand/foot or where you got bit under cold water for relief. - Try not to touch the area too much - Avoid getting bit again in the same area!
