Medical advice???

Recommended Posts

Soooooooooo glad you went to the doctors, didn't like to say before, but I got bitten by something in Goa earlier this year and even though I went to the doctor and got antibiotics they didn't work.


When I got home I had to go to my own GP who immediately took blood samples and put me on another course of antibiotics and penicillin with iodine dressings on the bites The blood test came back with some kind of infection showing. The bites themselves heald quickly apart from one, which was the one which spread the infection. This took 8 weeks to heal completely with visits to the nurse twice a week for dressings and I still have the scars!


Hope you are not as unlucky as me and you have got the treatment early enough.
