Wow… never had an insect bite or bites like this – especially in the East Village of New York City. This is my foot a week after sand fleas had a party on me. No doubt the fleas of the Florida Keys are well fed in that certain others including Supa-stah and her sistah have been afflicted.
Even stranger is that the insect bites did not appear until a week later. I’m in shorts today and have “after bite” ammonia medication.
Follow Up, A Month Later:
The sand flea bites stopped itching after a week, but I can still see the marks on my foot. I never itched these bites either.
My best treatment advice is to wear sandals with no socks (fortunately, I worked where going barefoot was o.k.). The less that touches your sand flea bites while they’re itching the better. Also, cortisone cream seemed to work best for me in regards to sand flea bite treatments or remedies.
