Removing a bot fly
How to properly remove a bot fly
Steps to take when removing a bot fly
You saw those horrible science fiction films, right? How does it feel when you watch bot flies do frighteningly unthinkable things like burrowing underneath human skin? Do you want to be one of those human hosts? Hell, NO! Some movies feature people who are trypophobe. But even if you do not have trypophobia, do realize the fact that eggs for botfly larvae do get implanted into simple things like say, mosquito bites. Even if you do not have fear of holes in skin, it turns into something worrisome. Fortunately, what bot flies do to their human hosts is not in any way life threatening. Still, a bot fly can become a grave problem if you are unaware of the right methods for taking care of it. Do don’t just be unreasonable even if you do not have fear of holes in skin. Get started with a pair of flat head tweezers and a piece of Iodine Antibacterial soap. And keep some Gauze Medical tapes handy. If you do not have trypophobia, getting rid of bot flies is even easier for you. First of all, figure out whether you actually have any bot fly using you as a host. Most of the bot fly bites begin with the looks of a normal mosquito bite. Ironically, you can’t find any difference in the itching or irritation as well. There isn’t anything you can notice in the initial 4 or 5 days setting them apart. If it is really a mosquito bit, just let a week pass and it will start to heal on its own. If you scratch it raw, it’ll just heal over fast and you will find the inflammation subsiding quickly. However, when it really is an irritating botfly infestation, you will find the inflammation continuing and worsening. The itchiness keeps getting worse. Then again, the bump hardens and starts feeling different from what regular mosquito bites are. It will look more like some kind of infection. It’s as well important that you recall where you have been as you got that mosquito bit which could have laid the botfly egg within you. Just in case you are living in a rather tropical climate, particularly if you used to live in a typical rainforest, which could be primary and/or secondary, and if the mosquito bites were from there, it’s very much possible that your infection is actually a bot fly infestation. After you have identified properly, try to put some pressure to that bot fly. If you’re absolutely sure about having a botfly, you should find someone you trust, so he or she can help you remove it. Get started with your removal process through making the friend carefully hold on either side of that inflamed area, or on the mound. Tell him or her to press at the bite’s opening in the mid point. Make sure that enough pressure is applied to both the mound sides. It is your job to press the main fraction of the inflammation both up and out. Then again, it could be also as though the friend pops a huge zit. In that case, make sure that she or he keeps applying the pressure till the bot fly larvae’s tail is out. This’ll hurt and you might bleed a bit. Pull off that botfly with the tweezers by grabbing on the tail. Ignore its resistance. But don’t tug, as you don’t want the botfly larvae to break into two pieces.
