Hi, I recently returned from Mozambique and found what
looked like a blister on my toe. It appeared to have
dull blackish spots on the inside. When it was lanced
and pressure applied a large amount of a white substance
appeared. It was firmer in substance than puss. Soon after
my girlfriend found the same, she had traveled with me.
We both suffered what appeared to be a very heavy flu
with fever and we were both quite ill for about 4 days.
The wounds left quite deep holes in our toes as if something
had been burrowing inwards. Any ideas? Should I have my blood
tested and what for?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
