Am hearing so much about Pica Pica on the boards and I know someone posted having Sea Safe as a prevention and another product called Eurax as a treatment. Went on the internet and did a search on both products. The ad for Sea Safe claims the little guy are prevalent in Florida waters, although we've lived in Florida for more than 10 years and have never had a problem even while living in the Florida Keys. Have already purchased Bull Frog sun screen and am wondering do I really need to get some Sea Safe or just try to find some Eurax to be on the safe side or am I making a mountain out of a molehill. Apparently, Eurax is a crotamiton (used for scabies also). Decisions, decisions!

molehill


If you must choose between two evils, pick the one you've never tried before.

I have friends living in Florida who have experienced the pica pica many times, but then they are divers. They've also tried the Sea Safe and did not experience any stings on the days that they did so. However, my friend was still somewhat hesitant to say that it was because of the Sea Safe. He felt they'd need a few more experiences in those conditions to be really sure.


A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?
