My wife and I recently visited Cocoplum Cay (near Hopkins) and then stayed in AC for the last part of our trip. We had a great time, and look forward to a return trip.
I have a "bug" question. We visited the Mayflower Reserve and Several Maya sites, but to the best of my knowledge, I found (hard to ignore) several small, black, about .05mm, critters burrowing into my skin that got me on AC. They itch like hell and caused a welt that resembles a blister about 7.0mm in diameter. I did what seemed to be the natural thing to do; I dug them out with a pin and hydrogen peroxide. All seems well at this point, but my wounds healed much faster than my wife's. So, who can tell me what these little guys were? Do I need to keep an eye out for any kind of delayed health concern? And finally, why didn't the infamous DEET in a can work as well as planned?
Many thanks in advance,
