Possible Blanford Fly bite warning

Article Published: Sunday 20th August 2017 16:12:05 pm
Blandford Fly Bites
Jan McLellan was bitten on her lower leg recently whilst playing the 3rd hole.
Jan experienced no serious effects at the time, however later in the day her leg became infected and extremely painful.
The Doctor researched her symptoms and discovered a number of cases had been reported across the South & East of England with similar symptoms after being bitten by Blandford Fly.

Symptoms of Blandford fly bites

The NHS says Blandford fly bites are usually most common during May and June. They often occur on the legs and are very painful. They can produce a severe, localised reaction around the area of the bite. It says symptoms include:

Oedema ( swelling)
A high temperature (fever) of 38C (100.4F) or over
Joint pain

Treatment for Blandford fly bites

Doctors familiar with Blandford fly bites suggest the following treatments:

Clean the bite wound with soap and water and dry gently
Creams that contain camomile lotion, steroid cream or anaesthetic can soothe the pain of a bite, as can an antihistamine tablet. Do not apply cream or ointment to broken skin and always follow the instructions on the packet. Even though it may be itchy, try to avoid scratching the bite because you may damage the skin and allow bacteria to get in
Redness and irritation are common and should settle within a few days with these measures
Secondary infection is less common. If you notice red lines appearing on the skin or enlarged lymph nodes (swelling) in your armpit or groin, seek medical advice.

Blandford fly bite prevention

NHS Herefordshire recommends people should cover up and use insect repellent when out and about near affected rivers and streams.

The Captain and Committee are very proud of one of our juniors, 14 year old Daniel Nicholls, who today at the very difficult St Andrews Old Course was beaten 3/1 in the final of the St Andrews Boys Open 2017.

The preliminary round was a scratch stroke play event over the Eden course. The competition was open to all 17 year old juniors from around the world. 140 Juniors took part and the top 32 qualified for a match play knock out over 3 days. Daniel won the scratch stroke event with a gross score of 67 thereby qualifying in 1st place for the knock out stages. He then went on to win his first round, second round, quarter final, semi final, and narrowly lost in the final. In the semi final Daniel recorded a score of 6 under par on the actual Old Course!

We are talking about the worlds finest young players here.

In the final Daniel came up against a young Japanese tour player who had twice been the boys World Champion. Unfortunately Daniel lost the final 3/1

Needless to say Captain, Chairman, Committee and all members are extremely proud of Daniels achievement and wish him every success in the future.

Well done Daniel,

David Joshua,
