Customer Question

When to Bahamas Nassau in 2013 ( march) got bite by sand fleas-terrible, was on Prednisone , sorts of creams. Even went to a Dermatologist in the US. Took a chunk out of my leg. Just another cream . This went on for almost a year. When up north in august , I blue up with these things again (legs)they feel like a pinch really bad then itch and ooze. It wakes me up . I found a good doc. and he gave me PERMETHRIN cream. What a relief. I am a healthy Woman 59 not a any medications. July 8 of this year , it blue up again my Doc gave me the same cream. Now last night it woke me up on my foot , pinch like all------- I do have some on my legs too. I am very hyper person anyway but this is driving me nuts. Help me if you can just the start of the day thanks *****
