Katja Burkard: “It itches like hell”
Katja Burkard suffers from the consequences of a grass mite bite: The RTL star is now affected by unpleasant harvest dross.
RTL presenter Katja Burkard, 56, had probably not expected that: After an itchy spot on her leg had swelled into a major inflammation, she informed her doctor that she unfortunately had a clear diagnosis of crop scabies. On Instagram, she shared with her what had happened – and why it was so particularly uncomfortable.
Harvest scabies: “Everything is fire red”
“Harvest scabies” is a grass mite bite that is associated with skin irritation, itching and particularly stubborn inflammation. The infection is also extremely uncomfortable for Burkard: “The ankle can no longer be seen, everything is fire red and itches like hell,” she told her broadcaster RTL. You can see in the video how you can protect yourself from the harvest dross and how the presenter deals with it.
