I usually don't feel Sandfly bites until hours later. Then the itching is unbearable and I often end up with sores that take weeks to heal- sometimes leading to scarring.

Ti tree ointment can help relieve the itch and heal quicker.

A doctor in Cooktown last year suggested digging fingernails into two sides of the bite might also help. A couple of bites threatened to turn into tropical ulcers and being diabetic healing takes longer than healthier people.
