  1. Good to hear you are on the mend John. It seems in the Philippines a simple scrape or bug bite can turn into major Medical problem. We had friend which was staying with relatives which got bitten by Bug when he was sleeping and his leg swollen up to 3 times the size looking red and had puss running out. I told him that must of been one hell of a large Bed Bug he was sleeping with. Or one of those big gray harry so called house spiders decided to join him in bed. The reason before I climb in bed at night I always check under covers to make sure nothing is trying to sleep with me. He also needed to take Medicine for several weeks to make the swelling went down and close the wound on his leg.

    1. It’s not fun that’s for sure. The thing is, it didn’t really hurt, but that consistent leaking was making a mess of things. I asked the doctor if I should cover it up, but she said, “Not really”, so I stopped covering it up. I just made sure it was clean and disinfected.
