I've been in Roatan for over a week now, and my immense pleasure in being here has been greatly reduced by my incessant itch resulting from sand fly bites. Perhaps you saw me walking down a West End street, perpetually scratching away, studded by a constellation of innumerable bites It had gotten so bad, I could not sleep at night, since my bites were tormenting me ceaselessly. I tried the local remedy, alcohol, Vick's, lemon juice---to no avail.
Fortunately, a friend recommended a miracle cure---aloe vera gel! It worked, it truly worked, almost instantaneously. Perhaps others have different effective remedies, but I wanted to share my miracle treatment since I would not wish anyone to suffer as I did the past several days. Now, the itch is gone and the blistery, ugly sores are getting fainter and smaller. Aloe vera smells nice, too! And it was available at Eldon's. I still have a few days left in Roatan... so I am very grateful for the aloe vera cure since now my fun times will be even better since my hands will be freed from perpetual scratching! Begone, accursed sand flies!
