How to properly remove a bot fly from the skin
Trypophobia is horrible. And a trypophobe dude is made fun of. Fear of holes in skin is a problem that many people won’t admit, but folks… it does exist! After all, being trypophobic is definitely not the best thing on earth. But apart from the ‘fear of holes’ things, it is also true that bot flies do lay eggs if they manage to land onto the skin / hair of mammals. Bot flies could be that yakky! But if you look at their background, they are actually the native creatures to the Central as well as South American regions. They are used to infesting mammals like humans, cats or horses. They are good at laying larvae after landing onto mammal skin. Such larvae literally burrow into these skins which creates pustules filling with fluid. If any larvae infests into the body, it’s primarily known to be – myiasis. In most of the cases, bot flies have the capacity to infest humans. They can also infest horses as they land onto them, when the horses are busy licking one another clean. You can ingest these eggs alright and let them to easily travel towards your digestive tract. If that happens, the larvae of a bot fly can cause ulcers. So how do you make sure that you get rid of them? The first line of defense against these crooks is Surgery. You could definitely try using a scalpel on the pustule. Use a regular anesthetic and get rid of the bot fly using a scalpel. Slice of with care. Make sure that it’s merely deep enough into the skin so you can get a sight of the larva (or even worse – formed bot fly). Carefully get rid of it with forceps. If the animal gets infected (e.g. a horse) you can utilize a “bot knife” for this. This type of knife is widely available at the typical equine supply stores and is meant particularly for this job. Another option is Coax. Just coax that bot fly off the skin. Cover up the spiracles used by the fly for breathing. Use something that keeps it from breathing. You could use petroleum jelly for this. But a smooth slab of basic raw bacon is also good. The third option is a Comb and some Vinegar. Utilize a well-toothed comb if the larvae / eggs are stuck in the hair. For typical bot flies stuck in the human hair or the hair of horses, you could utilize a well-toothed comb for removing the eggs. You can find an ideal on at the equine / pet stores. Perhaps your last resort is the antibiotics or hospitals. If you must, consult a doctor if you are afraid of the removal process. If you prefer seeing a professional physician for removing the bot fly, make an early appointment. She might choose to cut that pustule by herself. Or she can prescribe a suitable antibiotic for riding you of those infestations. Following any of these treatments used for these bot flies, you can consider taking antibiotics for entirely ridding yourself.
