    should have worn booties!
    My friend and i went out at windansea, he slipped on a rock, cut his foot and now has mad red bumps all over his one foot....

    has anyone gotten this before.. should he invest in a hospital visit? its been 2 days and has only gotten worse.

    i've never heard of an allergic reaction to a reef cut; perhaps it got infected somehow. i'd get it checked out if it has only gotten worse since it happened

    got to the doctors as soon as possible. ER if need be... Lots of bacteria on the reefs, so he is obviously reacting to something. Not something you want to wait out... got to get it checked out now.

    Did he just cut his foot and then didnt go surfing or did he cut his foot and was still surfing with it for a few days and it has gotten worse? If he cut his foot on the rock and didnt go surfing then thats the problem, but if kept going surfing on it especially the water quality hasent been terrific. Just some more possibilities. Hope you figure it out.

    you definitely gotta take care of every single open wound on your body, no matter how small. the water quality near rivermouths can get quite sketch. sometimes it'll be a beautiful day along the coast while it downpours elsewhere, so we see the runoff from those inland communities.

    i have a bottle of hydrogen peroxide in my car, in my bathroom, and in my duffel bag. although it may scar, you have to clean those cuts every time you get out of the ocean! i hope your friend gets better

    He said he felt like he cut it when he slipped paddling out..
    No health insurance, but he just got back to NJ so maybe he can get it looked out through a family friend. ill let you guys now if his foot ends up falling off.
