Horrifying: This Couples Facebook Post Shows The DANGERS Of Walking Barefoot On Beaches
Isn’t it wonderful to walk barefoot on the beach? That you could just kick off your shoes and relax without any danger. Well, that is not always the case. A young couple from Canada, Katie Stephens aged 22 and Eddie Zytner aged 25, who went to the Dominican Republic for vacation ended up in a hospital stay. And just from the walk on the beach and this is why they are spreading the information and warning the people over walking barefoot.
The Hookworm Attack
They told it CTV news how they got their feet infested with the hookworm larvae after walking on the shore for a day. They shared their experience in a viral Facebook post where they cautioned everyone how they should wear shoes while walking in the sand. They also suggested to get the feet or any body part checked instantly if they find it itching because they thought it was just bug bites but it kept worsening every passing day.
The couple was even disappointed in the negligent attitude of Canada health service where their deteriorating health condition was neglected in the light of this requirement. Katie and Eddie had to get the medicines from the States for their treatment which they didn’t expect.
Diagnosing The Problem
As the couple stated, they thought primarily reason for the itching was sand fleas which they had heard a lot about initially. But they didn’t think it was something big until they saw the swelling on Sunday. When they went to the hospital, they were unable to recognize the condition. After only 4 days later when a doctor who had seen hookworms in action in Thailand recognized that these were the similar case.
The couple was prescribed Ivermectin, which isn’t licensed in Canada. Because of its unavailability in Canada, Eddie’s mother drove to Detroit to get some medicine for 88CAD. Though the couple is recovering, they still might have to use crutches for the meanwhile.
They have shared their story with the world so that we can avoid such condition. Share this post with your family and friends and be safe!
