MUST READ: “HELL’S ITCH! / DEVIL’S ITCH / FIRE ANT ITCH” 😈
First of 2019, I thought I would publish something that is very interesting and fun but it turns different.
I just want to share this to you guys. This is a serious thing. And it really sucks and it kills me every time it hits me, I SWEAR! NOBODY UNDERSTANDS HOW I FEEL. It’s like a thousand of ants are biting both my arms and shoulders. ALL I WANTED IS TO ESCAPE FROM THE PAIN AND THIS ITCH. And I wanted to cry. Promise!
Okay? Here it goes, last Saturday we went to Olango Island, Lapu Lapu City, Cebu Philippines – for chilling, enjoying the beach, and feel the heat of the sun. When we got there, it took hours before we start swimming. I really cannot believe that it is really happening right now, I though this plan is not going through but here we are, keep enjoying. I took my shirt off and enjoying the heat of the sun, I always love to do it. I don’t care about the sunburns since I’ve been experiencing sunburn before. And I confident about it.
Keep swimming, keep talking, and keep enjoying at the same time.
We took our lunch and take a break. Although, I can feel the sunburn in my skin especially on my shoulders, arms, and at the back. I keep ignoring it. Around 3pm, we decided to go home since it is too hot to swim and we are very tired also. So, when we got home I took a shower and doing some household chores and then rest.
On Sunday, I can really feel the pain of the burns but this is usually happens for everyone. And I liked it! It was my plan actually to get sunburn. NOW, I DID NOT EXPECT THAT THIS IS REALLY HAPPENING TO ME RIGHT NOW! I though it was the surroundings or in my room that makes me itch. So, I clean my room, washing the plates, put some alcohol on the floor, changing the bedsheet BUT IT WAS NOT. I started scratching it and I am not comfortable with it. So, I took a bath. But, nothing is changed. I keep spraying (insect killer) both the corners in my room for I thought it was the reason BUT IT WAS NOT! I started to cry. I don’t know what to do. I am doing crazy things to ease the pain and itch BUT NOTHING HAPPENS. And IT MAKES ME CRAZY! Have you experiencing this? My God! I can’t explain very well.
I suddenly think about the beach we went or the sunburn. So, I research it on Google! And here I found, “THIS IS A RARE CASE, especially to those people with sunburn may also experience an extreme, deep, painful itching called hell’s itch. Also known as devil’s itch or fire ant itch, some people describe it as an unrelenting itch that can keep them awake at night and persist for days while the skin heals.”
This is my FIRST TIME! OF ALL THE EXPERIENCES IN SUNBURN BEFORE, THIS IS ACTUALLY MY FIRST TIME!
So, I went to Pharmacy, and buy the antihistamine (medicine) or any that could help me to relief this pain and itch. BUT SAD TO SAY, they won’t allow me to buy a Benadryl unless if it recommends or prescribed by the doctor. So, I take Ibuprofen and Allerta. And I keep drinking water. I keep scrubbing it using aloe Vera.
OMG! THIS IS NOW MY 2ND DAY OF WORST FEELING EVER! AND I PROMISE AFTER THIS CIRCUMSTAMCES, I WILL NOT EVER GO TO BEACH AND GET SUNBURNS. IT KILLS ME. I KEEP PRAYING THAT THIS WON’T TAKE LONG AND HOPING THAT THIS WOULD BE GONE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
✔️ PS. Hey guys! I am living you some link/videos for you able to read/see and to understand how I felt and for you able to prevent it.
