For me midge bites (like a mild form of mosquito bite) quickly disappear, but cleg, or horse fly bites, swell up and itch for a week or more.
Last week I applied aloe vera juice shortly after feeling the nip of several horse fly bites, and they disappeared overnight. I used to buy aloe vera in a tube, now we grow it in a pot, and it’s easy to cut a leaf and use the juice which emerges.
Now that I eat more raw food I’m much more tolerant of the sun; but if I do get a bit too much, aloe vera juice calms it down overnight.
So, if bites or burns are a hazard for you, I encourage you to test a small area of your skin first, and if all’s well apply aloe vera juice until the symptoms disappear.
If you know of a repellent for horse flys that really works, please let me know!
