Ant Bites On My Junk - Again

Recommended Posts

no matter how long i live here i always seem to slip into a sense of complacency. I become careless and forget that all important rule -- check the towel before you dry yourself.

it is for this reason, that almost every towel in my house is white, you can see at a glance if the little red bastards with a black section at the back have reappeared as they seem to do without fail at this time of the year. Every towel but one, and it is brown.

well today after a quick shower before i set off to pick up my daughter from school i grabbed the brown towel and and proceeded to dry myself vigourosly, beginning as i always do with my junk, giving my butt a good dry and moving on to the rest of my body.

Seconds later, the burning, searing pain begins as welts start to raise themselves all over by body, not the least of which are below the belt and all over my bits.

The first one appears at my throat and i realize what i have done, i grab the towel, and sure enough, it is alive with the vicious beasts.

i really cannot explain in words the discomfort that ensued and lingered for the better part of an hour.

If the towel wasn't brown, perhaps you'd see them first?

I'm still stinging from a troop of ants that crawled across my bed a few moths ago. A couple of them got lost in the folds of the sheets and apparently liked the brush "down there". With the perpetual Bangkok sweat their campfire is still burning on occasion -even months later.

What sort of house do you live in if you get ants in your bed? Get the exterminators in and clean better.

Same same butt different for me. The bites were on my face because I have this strange habit of drying my face before drying the southern regions and then moving on to the other regions...

Wash your towels regularly and dry in the sun. In between washes, hang them so that they can dry properly. Then there will be nothing to attract the ants.

I have experienced the female equivalent while working out in the garden. More than once.. And also once a bite directly into the eye. So I know whereof you speak.

When I was bit in the eye my vision blurred and there I was trying to consult medical texts to see if there was any risk of long term damage except I couldn't read them because my vision was so blurred...and my eye in excrutiating pain. (For anyone unlucky enough to encounter this: the blurred vision will resolve fully, and you should get eye drops containing a steroid to hasten the process).

Their bites contain formic acid.

Ok, so the vision will resolve fully, but what about his junk? will it ever work again?giggle.gif
