Beware, Gulf Coast beach lovers. Sea lice outbreaks are being reported along the Florida panhandle, and biologists say the pests could head to other warm water areas soon.

Sea lice, also called beach lice, are actually microscopic jellyfish larvae that possess the stinging power of a full-grown jellyfish. They are difficult to spot underwater, and they often get stuck beneath the bathing suits of swimmers, causing a painful rash known as “seabather’s eruption”. 

In mild cases, a victim may develop elevated skin with a reddish tint and small blisters. In severe cases, victims may experience fever, nausea and other flu-like symptoms. 

While many people are tempted to treat seabather’s eruption with cold water, experts say the best way to treat the rash is to rub the affected area with sand or the edge of a credit card to remove the jellyfish and flush the skin with hot water.

Florida officials have confirmed the presence of sea lice at South Walton Beach and Santa Rosa Beach. Sea lice are common in areas with warm waters, such as the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean. 

While they are present throughout the year, infestations normally occur between the months of April and August.
