True Claims Stories

  • After swimming in the ocean, my entire upper body broke out in a rash. I tried creams, talc and Benadryl for 3 days, but could not bring rash under control. I was unable to sleep and was constantly itching. I started breaking out in blisters where the rash was. I contacted Nomads via email and ended up going to the emergency room where I was prescribed a strong antihistamine and prednisone. This stopped the itching after 24 to 36 hours, but the blistering continued for another week or so.

  • I woke up at 6.30am because I felt a bug enter my ear canal. I had to go to emergency because of the pain and waited for the otolaryngologist. He examined my ear and proceeded to flush it out with a warm liquid. It turned out to be a "silverfish" bug.
    Resident of Peru
  • I was surfing at Echo beach in Canggu. I wiped out and hit the reef on the bottom with my right ankle. I had some pain at that time and was bleeding a bit, but it wasn't severe. I came home immediately after that happened. The part of the wound was a bit swollen at night and I thought it would go away soon because that's usually what happens with reef cuts. It didn't go away, even after a couple of days. At the hospital, they found out there was a small part of the coral reef inside of the skin.
