Reminds me of getting dizzy after handling a sea cucumber that had eviscerated itself and released some milky substance (I had cuts on my hands, though).

In general, it's a good precaution to wear gloves whenever possible. Check out the following threads:

About Monkeydog's particularly bad bout with M. marinum, complications led to hospitalization and almost losing use of his arms

The pinned post about palytoxin in the Zooanthid forum--talks about how someone's dog died after sniffing around zoo's

Dangers of reefkeeping--one of the most comprehensive threads about the subject, includes good info on M. marinum, palytoxin, and many others
