I love gardening and worked in a neglected garden. My legs are always protected, they have at least 30 infected bites, they start as tiny red dots and only after 4 month they became larger. They don't itch and are not painful. Once larger and by mistake pushed on they are very painful. The treatment with Leshcutan makes it looks horrible and uneasy to wear long pants. Please don't do the same mistake as I did, and have it treated straight away. Sadly most doctors have no clue about it.

I received "thermal" treatment. A metal tool was heated and the area was burned.
