In brief: Depends

A fungal infection in the blood would definately put a nix (permethrin) on travel as u would be quite ill.
On the skin, this is more a nuscience like poison ivy than anything & simple treatment is available.I wouldn't put myself in quarintine for this either.Cary your meds with you and have a good time.
