Default Re: Lyme disease from Caribbean?

Michellle, did you go swimming or just into the water at Seaquarium Beach in Curacauo? This is a man-made beach right next to the Aquarium. I did a couple of years ago, and developed a skin rash on only one of my legs/ankles. I was not alone, but it really burned and was inflammed for several days. I met one other cruiser who had the same type "rash" and she too had swam in that body of water. I never had long occuring problems from it as it did finally clear up with prescription strength hydrocortisone which I happened to have with me. Good Luck and sure hope you recover soon.
