I was camping in Ghajn Tuffieha over the last week and as it was so hot I abandoned the tent and slept outside. Anyway, long story short I now have over 200 sandfly bites (mostly on my arms - I look like a leper) - which is not the most ideal souvenir for an otherwise great trip.
These really are not a thing we have at home and are really, really uncomfortable. I was wondering how long does it take to heal, and whether I should be concerned about laishmaniasis with so many bites? Is that a thing in Malta?
