Hi all ~ My 18 month old son and I are scheduled to travel to Caye Caulker next week, and I am growing a little apprehensive about access to care if he were to have a medical issue. He has eczema and asthma, with food and environmental allergies as main culprits.
If a young child were to have a serious asthma attack or allergic episode, are there good facilities to care for him on an emergency basis? If not, how quickly can one get to care on the mainland? And is there reason to worry about malaria on the island? (Antimalarial measures may do my son more harm than chancing a bug bite.)
Thanks ~ we are really looking forward to our visit, but want to make sure all our bases are covered "just in case".
