We returned on Sunday after ten amazing days on St. Thomas and St John. I hope to post a trip report soon, but for now I wonder if anyone has had a rash when returning from a VI trip, and what helped it? My rash started on my forearm on the way home. (it could have been something on the plane I suppose, flew on "Break Your Spirit Airline") The rash on my forearm has stayed even when it comes and goes in other places. It is a tiny pin dot rash, no blistering except for the occasional single raised red spot somewhere else on my body. Mostly stomach. I break out and itch like crazy, then the rash goes away. have had it on my tongue, eyelids, in my hair, inner thigh and now the back of the other arm. The forearm rash remains. These aren't bites, it is a very large area of pin dot rash.
We snorkeled every day, didn't eat anything unusual, hiked the Lind Point trail the day before we left, stayed one night in a cabin at Cinnamon Bay. I wore deet and didn't ever suffer with bites. Our condo didn't have bugs and we washed the sheets mid week anyway. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know. I am taking benedryl for the itch and using hydrocortisone for the rash. I will see the Dr. on Thursday, but I am really curious to know if anyone else has experienced this.
