Nothing to worry about here: Zika Survivor Says ‘I Could Feel My Skin Shrinking’

“BOSTON (CBS) – A 46-year-old landscaper, who does not want to be identified, says last month he went to Brazil to visit his 90-year-old ailing father.

While he was there he was bitten by several mosquitoes. When he returned home to the U.S. he discovered he had the Zika virus.

“My lips burned all over. I could feel my skin shrinking in my face and ears,” he said. “I was very hot.”

Health officials say there are seven reported cases of Zika virus in Massachusetts. All are connected to people who were traveling abroad. Now they also say mosquitoes capable of carrying the Zika virus can now be found in 30 states.

The man says he had a rash all over his body and his temperature reached 110 degrees.”

  1. The Zika Virus can also cause Gullain-Barre Syndrome (a disease where the immune system attacks the nerves and can cause respiratory failure) too. http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/861811

    Shame on the media for downplaying it as “only” birth defect disease.
