No-See-Um Bite Treatments

Bug Facts No-See-Ums

Treating No-See-Ums Bites

No-see-ums are tiny flies, whose miniature size makes them very difficult to spot. Females are known for their bloodsucking habits as they need protein in order to produce eggs.

If you happen to be bitten by no-see-ums, here is some practical advice that you can follow to help reduce the redness and swelling.

Use Essential Oils

Essential oils can provide a feeling of relief from the itching and swelling caused by the bite of a no-see-um. Some useful essential oils that you can use are lavender, tea tree, peppermint, and eucalyptus. Use only pure, therapeutic-grade oils, and don’t put them undiluted directly on your skin. Be sure to mix a few drops with carrier oils like jojoba or sweet almond, or aloe vera gel to avoid further irritating the skin. (Check out a helpful dilution chart and general common-sense safety tips here.) Consult with your doctor if irritation occurs.

Take a Cold Shower

Taking a cold shower can help with the itchy sensation left by the biting.

Apply an Anti-itch Cream

Using anti-itch creams is a good method, as antihistamines work by inhibiting inflammatory responses to the irritation and itchiness no-see-um bites can cause.
