Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi Anyone got bitten by a sandfly in Iraq and developed leishmaniasis commenly known as the "Baghdad Boil" ?
  2. why do you want to know?
  3. Hi no_angel your link doesn't work
  4. FYI: Patrol medics brief: Only one reported incident up to April 2004.
  5. Hi whether anyone else got bitten
  6. Thats strange! hundreds of USA troops were bitten???????????????
  7. Maybe yanks just taste better.

    Why have you posted the same question 5 times?
  8. You're right, it doesn't. :oops:
    Sorry. I'd typed in the address of the site at the top of the page.

    Anyway google "tropical disease" and the site for the Hospital for Tropical Disease comes up (amongst others). The page I was trying to direct you to gave out-patient clinic address and times.

    If you have got it, you will need to start treatment soon.
    Good luck.
  9. dirool2 - are you fishing for a story?
  10. Hi Goku kept trying to post it on another forum but it keeps going on this one
  11. Why has this utterly inane question been posted so many times all at once? :roll:

    Errr..yes..I was bitten and developed a whole range of diseases. Do I get a huge amount of cash for my trouble? If so, I can find loads of other people who would be willing to bluff a good lurgy to get some dosh...

    Pointless tosh.
