Exclamation Horse Fly bites/Moose fly bites

Well its that time of year again... The horse and moose flies are out and about biting and being a general nuance... even when using pest control bites still occurring. They leave a large patch of sore and swollen skin that seems to attract other flies to bite the same area... When they heal up there is usually a "bald patch" of skin exposed

Does anyone have tips on how to expedite he healing of these spots and encourage normal hair to return ASAP... I have tried Polysporin "pain relief" formula on areas they can't reach but that doesn't cover the areas that bites can occur...
Remember; white boxers need love too!

I have used "After Bite" for kids on my dog's ears. It has eucalyptus oil in it and the flies don't seem to like it.
