Default My latest ailment

ok....wait....whoa! new editor!

ok, anyway, back to my point. I have an infected bug bite on my leg that is only getting worse. If its not better within 24 hours, I will have to go into the hospital for IV antibiotics. I can hardly walk. Hurts like hell. Sorry I havent been on the board latley, Ive been trying to woo this girl. Anyway, just an update.

Put some Tincture of Iodine on it , it will sting like crazy but will kill any infection that there. Save you a trip to hospital anyway.
Regarding the new girl friend, whats her number and I will ring her and explain your problems!!

unfortunatly, nothing topical will help. it is already systemic. I had a fever last night and im getting it again. my lymph nodes are huge painful and swollen, and im allready on a massive dose of antibiotics.

Wow! You must have had something really nasty under your fingernails.

Good luck with the infection and the girl.

The girl will probably take longer to get a handle on, but a lot more fun.

next time.....the best stuff Ive ever found for clearing skin wounds and infections is something called 'Schreiner's herbal solution for livestock and horses' !!! i kid u not. i use it on my dog (coz hes like a goddamn horse!) and it is miraculous. then a while ago, an English visitor who was not able to use bug sprays or antihistamines asked why it wouldn't work on humans. we rang the manufacturers and they said (in a very southern drawl) that they use it all the time on themselves and it works just fine on humans but cant be sold as such due to FDA rulings. this is a list of ingredients.
aloe vera, comfrey, goldenseal, myrrh, cayenne and elder in an isopropyl alcohol base. ps. it stings like a M***** F*****. (their words not mine. lol). you hafta get it at feed stores and the like or ring them and find out where to get it. ph# 1-800-223-4325. aloha

i had a bite on my toe and was convinced it was freom a brown recluse. you would think that since i work for an exterminator, i would have realized it was just a mosquito bite...lol

i even went around showing my toe to everyone asking if they could identify the offending insect. no one could, although several people did tell me that if it was bothering me that much they could cut it off (the whole toe!) for me!!! lol
