While out in the yard mowing her lawn one day, Calvina was bitten by an unidentified bug. Soon after, she was struck by a mysterious rash which saw the skin by her ankles turn green and purple. Gradually, brown spots and an unbearable itch spread all over her body. Doctors were stumped; no one could diagnose what it was.
Calvina, from Oklahoma, believes her problems all stemmed from her cutting the grass one day. As she remembers, she was bitten by an insect in her yard, but she didn’t know what the bug was. It wasn’t long before her health began to suffer.
First, a mark appeared on Calvina’s ankle. She described it to health-related TV talk show The Doctors as being green and purple in color and around the size of a quarter. Soon, however, the unexplained blemish grew bigger, and a rash began to spread across her body.
