Was snorkeling in Haulover bay, stepped back to gain a grip and my left foot landed on a sea urchin (those big black ones with long needles). I have five pricks, and I'm not sure what to do. Here are some questions I have off the top of my head:
1: So the needle seem to be embedded in the ball of my foot...I'll need to take it out right? I'm soaking it in warm water to see if we can take it out carefully.
2: I read various sources that some tend to resolve. I don't want to leave it to chance. I know another thread says that medical care here is pretty good...do you think they have the capability to remove the needles?
3: ...or should I wait until I get back to the states to have somebody take it out?
I have four more days here, and don't want to ruin the rest of the vacation for my family. Any help is really appreciated!
