While in Burundi, my husband managed to become afflicted with..."Gross Leg." Gross leg was an accumulation of poor circulation from air travel for nearly 40 hours and massive amounts of bug bites in concentrated areas on his leg, knee and hip due to no mosquito repellent due to lost luggage! On a scale of 1-10, Gross Leg, at its full-blown worst, was about an 8.5. Since I zoomed in on the calf area, you can't see the hugely swollen ankle that made wearing shoes nearly impossible. I took this picture on Thursday when some of the worst bites had started to fade. We tried to count the bites - I lost count at 90-something!! When we got home, Dan went straight to the doctor - they prescribed an anti-parasite-anti-malaria-antibiotic that was extremely powerful and effective - 1 day later the swelling was nearly gone! Please note: the whiteness of the leg has nothing to do with poor circulation, air travel, or bug bites!
