Mosquito bites are extremely annoying and can sometimes cause illnesses like dengue that can be fatal. Their bites can cause serious illnesses if the insects carry certain viruses or parasites. Recently, a German man suffered multiple health problems including falling into a coma and having to undergo 30 surgeries – all because of a mosquito.
According to one Daily Star Reportedly, Sebastian Rotschke, 27, a resident of Roedermark, had to go through a life-threatening experience after being bitten by the Asian tiger mosquito in the summer of 2021. He experienced symptoms for the first time. It’s like the flu and this is just the beginning. Mr. Rotschke had part of his toe amputated, had to undergo 30 surgeries and was in a coma for four weeks. Not only that, he also had blood poisoning and had to be treated for liver, kidney, heart and lung failure many times.
What’s more, Mr. Rotschke even had to use cutlery to get skin grafts on his thigh to remove an abscess that had formed in that area. He thought his chances of survival were slim because, according to tissue samples, the malignant bacteria had eaten up nearly half of his left thigh.
Talking about his experience, Mr. Rotschke said daily star, “I’ve never been abroad. The bite definitely happened here. Then things started to escalate. I was bedridden, could barely go to the bathroom, had a fever and couldn’t eat. I thought it was going to be over. Suddenly I found my gray sweatpants soaked. Suddenly, a huge abscess formed on my left thigh. The doctors very quickly guessed that the wound was The bite of the Asian tiger mosquito is the cause of the whole thing and call a therapist.”
Mr Rotschke, who is currently on sick leave, said he was “so far fine” and urged others to be wary of such mosquito bites.
The Asian tiger mosquito, also known as the jungle mosquito, is a diurnal biting insect that can transmit dangerous diseases such as Eastern Encephalitis (EEE), Zika virus, West Nile virus, Chikungunya, and dengue fever. .
