Higad In English: Tagalog To English Translation Of "Higad"

In this article, we are going to learn about the word “Higad and its translation in English.

Higad could be described as a “hairy caterpillar”. Because of its lack of bite power, the caterpillar uses itchy hair-like barbs as a defence mechanism.

If any part of your skin gets touched by its hair it would break out into a tiny das. The fine, tiny hairs have already embedded in their documentaries and are almost impossible to wash off.

According to an article from Tagalog Lang, the most commonly cited scientific name for higad is Euproctis chrysorrhoea, a brown-tail moth whose larva is very hairy.

Here are some examples:

  1. Hinigad ako sa gamay, di ko man lang namalayan.
  2. Peter bat ang pula ng gamay mo? Na higad ka ba?
  3. Mayroon akong anti-allergy na gamot para sa higad mo.

In English, these sentences could be translated as:

  1. I got exposed to a hairy caterpillar and now I’m suffering from itchiness and swollen skin.
  2. Peter, why is your hand so red? Did you get in contact with a hairy caterpillar?
