After I went snorkeling a couple of weeks ago, I noticed I had some bumps on my face around my nose. I didn’t think anything of it. I thought it might be from a sore that was open and the salt water aggravated it or something. Well, it’s been over 2 weeks and it’s gotten worse. I have all these bumps, but they keep peeling and then bleeding. I think I had something like it before in the US. It was a bacterial infection. I have a friend here that knows a doctor(his brother). He called him up and explained my symptoms. The doctor then told him what medicine I should take. My friend told me 2 things that his brother thought it could be. One thing he said was that it was like a type of inflammation of the skin from the snorkeling mask and sun. The other thing he described was like a bacterial infection, but he said it had a name. He didn’t know what the name was in English(my friend didn’t). He called his brother back to ask what is was in English…he said mushroom! I immediately started laughing because obviously it meant fungus(bacterial infection). So funny, I have a mushroom on my face. 🙂 It’s so funny how some things don’t translate well and some don’t at all.
