: : : Has anyone in the Gulf War experienced this: Two years ago my gulf war son's leg mid distance from ankle to knee opened with a very deep hole. Just erupted-doesn't remember ever bumping it. Doctors can't seem to take care of it. Had about every test done to it. Now wound much wider and shallower and more painful. Would like to know of anyone with similair problem and how it was treated. Many thanks. Karen

: : sounds simmialr to whoccured to me . I had to pay to have area exized and closed and then after that it reopened. I have since finnally got it closed but I wonder also, the doctoers said it looked similar to a brown reclouse spider bite but I am not sure scott

: I live in Louisiana, and brown recluse spider bites do EXACTLY that to you. A dear friend
: got a bite (they hide in clothes, damp or very hot dark places) and can bite w/out you
: knowing it until you get a sore, which turns into a HOLE and sometimes causes gangrene
: like symptoms. were such spiders over there? Just wondering

I had similar symptoms from the war. I do not get them as severe as what was described by the others but I do get open "HOLES" in my skin that never heal and last for 6-7 months before any relief. Then as if a maricle it goes away and shows up in another spot. Never more then one place at a time. Dr. are really no help. Casey
