Bug Bites! Somebody Help Me!!#$%^&*

I have been working on another blog for a few days now. It’s my “Miss List Korea” blog and it will be finished soon. I was just typing out some things I’ll miss about Korea…and then…my bloody bug bites started itching me like mad crazy again. Now…here’s the deal: I got these bug bites back in August.




I know.

August 2010.

Right? I know. It’s nearly January 2011. Yes.

Bit in August.









Sooooo…I think me needs to go to another doctor and get them checked out. I mean…welllll…they had itched me insanely, insanely crazy to the point where I drew blood, caused scarring and nearly disfigured my ankles…oh yes–the pesky bites are located on my feet and ankles. But the peskiest bites are located on the BACK of my right ankle. I have two bites there. They still act up. Usually they will start itching terribly, terribly awfully every evening. Well, I have had a reprieve from the discomfort for a few days here and there. And each time I have thought…maybe just maybe I was done with the itching and scratching and application of anti-itch steroid creams…but no. They’ve never stopped itching permanently. 😕

Tonight I’ve applied gobs of anti-itch cream and have been scratching at these two particular bites. I seriously am considering doing a mini-home operation and cutting off a thick chunk of my ankle, hoping the bites and the leftover saliva that’s been floating around in there  for four bloody months will be removed along with my flesh. *&@!%@*&!^*(!&*!

Honestly, nobody knows what I’m going through.  Because this is a highly rare case of bug bites where some THING has bitten me and well…this insect was obviously other-worldly. All I know is that I do not (Alleluia) have scabies…whew. Could you imagine? Ick. Ick. Ick. But the bites are so terrible, really. I promised to say 500 (I think that was the number) Hail Marys…that’s how bad the itching was back in September. Ice-cream worked wonders to quell the mad, mad itchiness…but then I felt sticky afterward. So, that was eh~~I was given two different creams by my dermatologist…they have barely given me any relief. 😦 What’s a gal to do? Suffer.

And suffer I have. Probably because I haven’t held up my promise and said 500 Hail Marys yet. I’ve got at least 275 more to go.

Enough is enough!

I must get to the bottom of these bites. ❗

My creams don’t help that much. 😦  Anyone? Thoughts on the matter? 🙂
