    Advice when Jellyfish bites

    If you have already been stung by a jellyfish, you’ll need to treat the sting immediately. Here are some simple and humble steps to cure the stings at the moment:

    1. Remove any pieces of jellyfish tentacle.

    Then rinse the wound with seawater to avoid adding more sand on the stingers. Please don’t rinse with fresh water or wipe the wound with a towel/cloth, as these actions could break the stinging cells and cause another sting.

    You can also try gently scraping off the stingers with the dull edge of a knife or a butter knife, or just the edge of an ID card or a credit card. Make sure you don’t use your bare hands

    2. Rinse with vinegar or apply a baking soda paste

    Using vinegar to treat a jellyfish sting is not just an old wives’ tale. Rinse the wound with white vinegar for about 30 seconds. Or apply a paste of baking soda and seawater. Other alternatives include lemon juice, meat tenderizer, rubbing alcohol, or household ammonia.

    3. Next, soak the area in hot water for at least 20 minutes if possible.

    Icy packs can be used instead if the area can’t be soaked in hot water. Just put ice in the cloth or a bag to do this, don’t use bare ice to apply on the injury. Ice packs may help ease pain.

    4. Take a pain reliever and apply dedicated lotions to help relieve itching and swelling.
