Ok, so the first two times i visited Nicaragua, we had virtually no problems with bugs. But this last trip, we stayed in Juigalpa and when we woke up in the mornings, we started noticing little bites, that turned out like mosquito bites...but they wernt the same. they wern't hit and miss...they were more like a rash, and they were only on the bottom part our my arms, but some of the other ladies in the group had them on their legs and they were bigger welts. they itched SO BADLY. we only found them on the women in the group and whatever it was didnt bite everyone, just certain people, and they didnt all occur on the same night. some of us didnt find the bites till later on in the week (as in my case). it was unbelievale. they didnt go away for nearly 3-4 weeks either.
have no fear, the bottoms of my arms are no longer all bit-up-looking. thank God. now all i have to remember this "plague" is a few scars that remain from where i gave in to the itch. :( jaja.
Does anyone have any idea what could have bitten us ladies in the middle of the night??? some people thought it may have been chiggers? i have no idea.
