    Not sure if that picture will work, but that's my back this morning. It starts on the back upper part of my left arm, goes across my back and then goes down my left ankle and foot. SO ITCHY.... There are also random hives popping up all over, so it means business!!!!
    Oh my goodness that is awful! I never knew about the issues with the ropes. That’s a difficult lesson for sure. If you have a vitamin C cream that may help with the itchiness. Feel better!!!

    On a trip to Honduras then Belize (cruise ports) I had those marks all over my back and chest. So did the people who were in my group. It itch so badly I asked the pharmacist and he suggested so pink lotion which helped but it too a few weeks for the marks to go away.

    OMG that is BAD
    Mine was very very minor compared to that.

    I think you need to get to urgent care.

    Just landed in Dayton. Boo hiss. Officially back to normal now. *sigh*

    Definitely gonna be bathing in calamine lotion later. I get bad reactions to mosquito bites, bee stings, etc. here in Ohio, but Aruba took it to a whole new level! Lol. I guess Aruba doesn't want me to forget her. Or forget she's the boss!

    I just returned home from Aruba on 10/29 and did not experience any mosquitoes, which is very unusual. Normally I get all but up and hubby doesn’t. Go figure!!!
