    Rian has gotten some black fly bites ands has swelled up big time. She also has a runny nose/ itchy eyes/ hives/terrible cough. I have used Benadryl the last few nights...not during the day..only at night. How long is too long to use it for? Her cough is really bad and she has a hard time breathing. Has anyone had any experience with fly bite allergies?

    Also..it seems to be worse at night. At first I thought it might have something to do with her linens or bedroom. I did an overhaul and cleaned and sanitized everything..it didn't help.

    When I pick her up after work..I will see how she was today..if she is still having a hard time, I will take her to ER..thanks girls! Does it sound like it is a black fly allergy or could it be in conjunction with something else?

    if it all came on with the bites i'd say allergy, but if its been going on a while it could be something more underlying x

    I have had such a healthy baby...barely a runny nose up to this point. I hope it is nothing too severe or something like asthma!!

    Could she be allergic to something else like pollen ?
    Black flies and the trees pollenating are around the sametime.
    I haven't heard of someone getting a runny nose or breathing problems from black fly bite ( not to say it doesn't happen)
    I would take her to the ER, breathing problems can turn very scarey, very fast.
    I am really allergic to blackflys ( go figure, I live in Northern Ontario) but all I ever do is swell up..
