Getting stung by a jellyfish can be a reality for anyone swimming in the ocean.
Jellyfish stingers cause severe pain with redness, swelling and some bleeding in serious cases. The jellyfish stingers inject venom into the patient that can cause, cramps, fever, nausea, weakness and some difficulty in breathing. Remove the stingers from the patient with a towel or a T- shirt. Putting on some vinegar or an acidic liquid will neutralize some of the venom protein that was injected. Soak the wound in the hottest water that the patient can tolerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Keep the patient still and monitor their breathing and consciousness. Seek medical advice if their condition deteriorates.
