Severe fly bites

So my horse a few weeks ago got a massive allergic reaction to some weed. He has also had fly bites and mild hives in the past.
Ok anyways it was very nasty looking and it was totally healing up. But I just moved my horse and now there's hundreds of flies on him opening up the wounds again and now he's all bloody and gross. I've tried fly sprays and special medicated tea tree, etc spray. I haven't tried SWAT or aerosol bandages. Should I try one of those? In 24 hours he's got bites and new bubbly looking hive/bite things. Do you think the flies in the new place are more aggressive or what else could it be? Like I said until the move he was all healing up no flies were attracted to him like honey and everything was going well healing wise. But now it's all opened up again and there's new bites.

You may want to consider a fly sheet if the bites are that bad.
