What Happens When I Spend time Outside...

Was hanging out with my friend last night and it was quite buggy out and now this is what my ankle looks like.

Sorry the pictures are poor quality, I took them with my camera phone as I do not have a camera.

The first photo is of all the bites, about 14 visible in the photo (should be), three of them on my lower foot. plus three of four more around and on my calf. These are very tiny bites which have made my ankle swell. Plus the bigger bite on my calf it looks as if the lower half of my leg bows out and then bulges at the ankle to the inside. I tried to make this apparent in the second photo. Third photo is a shot of my calf and the last shot is a comparison of what my ankle should sorta' look like. You might even see the couple of other bites I received from just sitting outside, about five or six of them.

Anyway enjoys!

Benadryl shot is your friend. I had that happen to me when I was around 11 or 12 except it was fire ants. I stepped into an ant bed and my foot swelled up like crazy.

Re: What Happens When I Spend ime Outside...

Well let's see. When I got home I slathered on some AfterBite Kids (all I had at the moment). After a shower I searched my downstairs medicine cabinet. Couple os sprays of Cortizone-10 on affected areas and two tablespoons of Benadryl.

I run my fingers over the bites and I look at it and it looks as if two or three of them are just water blisters. One of them has already popped. But they are these very small bites and the bumps are hard, like calluses. It actually hurts to lean or put pressure on it and I got to stand all day on it today and tomorrow I'll be up and about doing installs. So I'm pretty sure it'll get banged up even worse.

Re: What Happens When I Spend time Outside...

I stepped into a fire ant mound when I was little too, luckily I wasn't allergic to them, just had about 2 dozen bites on my leg.

But keep in mind, just because you aren't allergic to them now, doesn't mean you'll stay that way. My mom had been bitten several times, then all of a sudden she was bitten 4 times and went into anaphalactic shock and nearly died. They have tried to treat the allergy with shots of the fire ant venom since then, and the graduation dose was something like one hundredth the power of one small bite. Since then she has been bitten once, by one ant and felt terrible for a week even though before her reaction she had been bitten numerous times.

So, just be careful when you get bitten, don't assume that just because it wasn't a problem before, that it wont be this time or the next.

Re: What Happens When I Spend time Outside...

Thanks to whoever fixed the title.

Anyways I never even stepped into an ant mound or walked through brush. I was just sitting on my friends porch in the middle of the 'burbs and we're talking. Next thing I know my ankle is itching figured i got one bit and wake up the next day to find 14 small bites.

I'm lucky enough to have never had allergies though. Past few springs the pollen has gotten to me but nothing horrible. Allergies are strange like that. You can have them the first half of your life and never have them again or just suddenly develop them.

So the one that popped is now a blood scab and I just popped another one (water blister), and I itch as all hell, lol.

Re: What Happens When I Spend time Outside...

I don't think I could handle that. I'd be at the doctors office begging them to inject me with something to make it go down lol. I just remember what it was like to have a swollen foot and its no fun.

This is why I work for Terminix. Actually...since I've been spraying houses I really don't get bothered much by bugs...I'll be testing that this weekend when I go back to the delta...the mosquitoes there will carry you off.

Re: What Happens When I Spend time Outside...

I never get bothered by bugs. Even at my grandfathers cottage, which is terrible with black flies an skeeters at the beginning of the summer (which is usually when I get there) and if I do get bit, the itch isn't bad and it is done in a day or two.

I believe fire ants were imported from South America.
