Who doesn’t love going to the beach? Think about it: where else can you work on your tan in the warm sunshine, make sandcastles and play beach volleyball, and surf and splash in the waves, all in one place?
Yet the beach isn’t all fun and games; there are threats everywhere you turn. From sunburns to (rather unlikely, statistically speaking, but no less terrifying) shark attacks, going to the beach should never be taken lightly.
This is especially true in Florida, where something terrifying has been found lurking in the seawater. The worst part? You won’t see it coming until it’s too late…
The itchy rash they leave behind is often called “sunbather’s eruption.” Other symptoms include blisters, fever, chills, nausea, and headaches.
Some beaches have purple flags to warn swimmers of sea lice.
It’s scary to think that something so painful can get to us without our even knowing, but luckily, there are measures you can take to prevent it. Just be careful out there the next time you’re at the beach!
