I've been chatting with several people who've encountered the larvae of the thimble jellyfish or sea ants/ sea lice on the beaches at Jalousie and others in the south~ very itchy raised rashes covering their whole body for up to 4 days. These bumps don't appear for several hours after your stung, the sea ants are invisible, and you don't feel the sting as it occurs.
I've found a product called Safe Sea http://www.buysafesea.com/ which is a jellyfish repellant. I do not think I will be shipped mine in time before I leave for Soufriere on Saturday the 20th.
My question, has anyone who'd traveled in the north end of St. Lucia experienced these rashes/bites? And does anyone know of a distributor of this Safe Sea product on St. Lucia?
