Risk Assessment: If there are any remaining open spots in the bites, it's a good thing to avoid spreading it. Probably safe, but why take chances? Wading w/ arms dry may be a good limit. Just imagine how awful you'd feel to worry about a person catching it! Not worth it IMHO, but you can evaluate your feelings. Hang out, have fun, keep bites dry if you agree.

Possibly: Doxycycline is a broad spectrum antibiotic which has the capacity to alter your normal bowel flora (types of bacteria) and to promote the outgrowth of other organisms. Clostridium difficile colitis can be a life-threatening disease.
