I apologize for the poor quality of this picture, but you are probably thankful you CAN’T see it very well.
I took this picture in the mirror after I realized how huge this bite had become. I had a total of about 5 of them that got this swollen – thankfully none were on my face!
Kinda gross, I’ll admit, but this is what happens when the black flies bite me. Not every bite does this, only certain ones – maybe the bugs with the really big teeth…
I suppose I am allergic to them, but I don’t have any trouble with other types of bug bites.
Black fly season is over — yipppeeee — and I can go outside again without fear of becoming deformed.
THIS IS NOTHING – check out the one from THIS year (2012)
