Not if anyone else has had this problem. I have ET and on Hydroxycarbamide, Asprin, oh and numerous other tablets.
But three weeks ago I got bitten while working in the garden it bit me on my chest "ouch" the little critter was so tiny but boy did he whack a punch causing me to have a humongous bite come up that became inflamed and infected, tried to get an appointment with the doc to no avail, so spoke with my Haemotology nurse and she told me to go back to my GP and tell them it was very important that I saw a doctor, well got one eventually with the duty doc and she gave me antibiotics, and said that if it started to have pus come out to come back and see a nurse, well on Thursday night it did just that I was in so much pain while it seemed to pump out, so in the morning rang surgery again and spoke with a doctor over the phone who said that the antibiotic were working "really" as I was not happy and tried to explain about ET she said that maybe I need to see the nurse in that case.
Long story short!!! Saw nurse who cleaned it up put silver strips over it then dressed it with a type of plaster that draws out impurities, and have to go back next week to have it looked at, and if not healing will have to have more antibiotics YUK they don't do me any favours, plus going away for a weeks holiday on Saturday.
In all my life I have only had one nasty bite, so was just wondering if we are more prone to them now, bit of a worry as I love to be outside.
I HATE BUGS nasty critters.
