If anyone’s curious. Im recovering from a debridement surgery of infected tissue.
An insect bit me at Batangas for a blog campaign (see: https://
I didn’t see what insect bit me.
I’m 100% sure it was from there kasi I went there without any bites and came home with a huge one. Paguwi ko may kagat na ko and as the days went by it got worse.
Kala ko noon ordinary insect bite lang 😣, tapos kala ko pigsa. HINDI SYA PIGSA. Good thing I followed my gut and had it checked by Doctor in St Lukes Hospital. At first he prescribed Clindamycin then follow-up checkup after 3 days, pero the antibiotics didnt work and my arm got worse. Almost lost an arm! 😱
I had to undergo a debridement surgery (30k++) to remove the infected area and the DEAD tissue. + 3k/session twice a week to heal my open wound.
