As most of you know my tank has been a biological disaster and my fish have Ich. Unfortunately during a recent H2O change I ended up spilling the old water on myself and clothes. Needless to say 24 hours later I am now covered with rashes and boils on the areas that were exposed to the water, which has persisted for 3 days now despite hydrcortazone cream.

Has anyone else had this unfortunate incident? I am seeing a Dr. tomorrow, and I am to bring in all chemicals Etc that were in the water at the time. Also the Dr. Is looking up what Ich is. Has there ever been reports of humans getting Ick or related illnesses. I know humans can get TB from exposed fish.

I am interested in what others have to say.
