fire ant. You stand in the wrong place for just one moment and the next week or so is ruined. They bite you so fast and so much that once a single ant is on you, it is too late. They usually get me while I mow the lawn and this year they have come close to getting me while I mow but this year it was the trap of a mouse that suckered me into getting bit. The picture above is about a week after I was bit because the bites look so nasty that I wanted to wait till my ankle would not make you throw up from any pictures of it.
Another thing I forgot to do was use my Curazene that is always in my diabetes purse. If you are not familiar with Curazene or missed my blog post about it, this is a staph infection antibiotic thing that is awesome on bug bites as well. Consider it like the skin version of baking soda, you know how they say use baking soda for everything like putting it in your fridge and brushing your teeth with it. Curazene is just like that for wound care. So a friendly reminder is to not just have a personal first aid kit with you all the time but to go through it and note what you have and don't have in it. If I would have done this more regularly I would have remembered that it was in my kit and would not have to had suffered the burn and the itch. Make sure you go to their website and order yourself a free sample, I 100% guarantee you will love it and if you don't I will refund your full amount of free.
