This Guy's Back Got Devoured By Mosquitos And It Hurts To Look At

Warning: Graphic photo of bug bites up ahead.

This is Jordan Lingle. He's a 21-year-old from Fishers, Indiana, who recently suffered an insane amount of bug bites, and the terrifying photo evidence was posted to Facebook.

Seriously, take a look at this terror:

Lingle was playing capture the flag with friends when it happened. His awesome hiding spot — at the edge of a field, near a river — also happened to be a mosquito hangout.

"All of a sudden I felt like I was being attacked by mosquitoes everywhere on my body, especially on my back," Lingle told BuzzFeed Life. "But I didn't want to move from my spot because I was hidden super well. So I tried fending them off, then I realized there was a complete swarm of mosquitos around me and it got unbearable, so I drove home."

“My back was itching so much it felt like my skin was peeling,” said Lingle.

"I showed my mom, who freaked out because she didn't think it was just mosquitos. She posted it to Facebook and her nurse friend said I was probably having an allergic reaction. I have bad seasonal allergies and asthma which could've made my skin's reaction to the bites a lot worse."

Luckily, his back returned to normal within a few days and he managed to not scratch all of his skin off. Lingle's friend, Noah Anderson, re-posted the picture of his back to Reddit where it blew up... much like his poor skin.

SO, if you don't want your back looking like this, maybe pack some bug spray when you're playing outside this summer.

Happy summer, everyone!
