Hello, new to these boards. I found this forum and figured it was the best place to ask (gotta love the internet). While in Carriacou I was wadling in water about 5 feet deep, roughly 20 yards out when a small wave pushed me a few feet from my location. My curious foot felt its way back to the ground only to land right on top of a sea urchin. I didn't see it, but after the initial sharp pain (thought I stabbed my foot in sharp shells) I started to swim back to shore. Before I even got to the shore I realized that there was a sting associated with it and I had stepped on something. When I looked I had 28 little black dots peppered all along my right foot. This urchin hit the jackpot on me. The local boat crew said it would go away in time, that I could pee on it, soak it in sweet water (regular tap water), and one guy saaid to smoke a cig and put the hot tip on the wounds for a second to kill the tips that are still in the skin. I chose to suck it up and do nothing until later when I got home I soaked it in water for awhile which did nothing. It hurt bad for 15 minutes, had some mild sting for about 2 hours and then was just a pain to walk on form then on. Now, 3 days later I can walk around, but I am still hobbling around with 28 black dots still in my foot, I tried using tweezers but I was unable to get a single one out. The pain while walking is decresing slowly and steadly, but at this rate it will take a week and a half to be normal, and even then I don't know if the black dots will be gone. Should I bother waiting or sould I just see a doc? No other symptoms of anything. The black dots have a little purplish color around them. They don't hurt unless pressure is put on them, then it feels like a bruise with a splinter in it. Advice?
