How can bat fly bites be treated ?

While in Costa Maya earlier this week, I believe I was bitten by a BAT FLY. I have a swollen, lumpy, round nickle size mark on my stomach. The actual bite felt like a fire ant bite. Now it itches and the lumps are growing in size. I ve heard the lumps are actually larvae deposited in the skin by the bite. If this is a BAT FLY bite, how should it be treated?
