The best thing would be to go right to your room and shower after you've been in the ocean. The cream/treatments are also always available in the hotel shops and they work well.
Oh that sux!! Was it bad, like did it ruin your trip? Did a lot of people get stung or just you?

It does happen and my homeopath suggegsts taking a bottle of vinegar with you to the beach. If they bite then pour the vinegar on it right away and you'll have no problems./QUOTE]

 

I think Tequila could work for this too. friday.gif

 

PS, just kidding Paul!

My sister and I both got them... it wasn't that bad, just little bites that were kind of itchy. They were more unattractive than anything, so we couldn't wear cute tops for a couple of days. I guess it would be a big deal if you were all red at your wedding, but like I said before, as long as you rinse yourself off you should be OK. I will probably just stay out of the ocean til after the ceremony (I will probably be too busy before then to do any sea frolicking anyway!)

We were with a big group of 8 or so people and my sister and I were the only ones affected. I think it varies person to person how susceptible you are to a reaction, like someone else said. Of course I am allergic to everything!

Leave it to Morgan to bring up the penis fish.

    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
