I’ve been home from Uganda for 9 days. I got bit on the stomach two weeks ago by what I thought was a mosquito, and the bites got bigger and painful. My doctor prescribed antibiotics but never saw me in person. I finally was able to see a doctor yesterday, and was surprised (and disgusted) when he removed two larvae. Oh my gosh – so gross!
It’s something to keep in mind … hopefully it doesn’t happen to others often. Other than the ‘souvenir’ I brought home with me, this was an amazing trip in a beautiful country. More info on the creatures:
