We were in AC June 11th-19th and toke a day trip to Maruba Spa & Resort for massages and such. On the way there taking a boat ride through the mangroves I was biten by what the locals called a Doctor Fly or Yellow Fly. It got my middle finger just above the knuckle, within 3 hours my hand had swollen up so bad I could not even make a fist and it went all the way to my wrist. Very scary because we are in the middle of the jungle and I am wondering when the swelling was going to stop. I did take some Benedryl at Maruba which seemed to help and the was gone by late the follow day.

knotborde,
So did you have to go around holding that finger up high all that time ? What kind of response did you get ?

I don't minf the sandflies and barflies all that much but they should really put out a warning on those landsharks disguised as timeshare/information people.

Kathy F, somehow I don't feel the compasion I would hope you women would show for us men after what we go thru for you. It felt much better prior to the RiiiiiiiiiiiiP.

And don't try that old ploy about it being all for us. That age old question was anwered by the analogy of what feels better when you itch your ear, your finger or your ear. :p
