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?

      I also just got back from Cancun yesterday and I didn't see any sea lice either!

        [QUOTE]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.

        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.
