Had my first encounter with duck fleas today.
Lovey warm gravel pit, right out in the middle when the itching started. Then had a 2 hour motorbike trip in leathers and sweated horribly and now I’m covered in bites. What a miserable thing.
Holy hell it has been hot in the Atlantic this past week, like too hot for a wetsuit, however the increased temperature has brought increased jellyfish traffic, so the suit is staying put.
Swam my first race ever on Sunday, a 2.25km open water race, 24 hours after getting my first Pfizer jab so my left arm wasn’t working very well, came 11th. Happy enough with that.
That duck flea thing, fuxxake, the inflammation only really starts when the little buggers tunnel their way out again. You also realise that the couple of dozen last night is a couple of hundred now. All over.
Dab of calamine lotion'll see you right, stop whining...
Ouch, that'll teach you, etc. etc., it won't--heal up soon!
Wow, terrible, terrible to watch, I can’t even imagine to have it. I didn’t even know about the existence of it. Heal up fast.
I agree with Kate Rew
