What to do if stung by a jellyfish
The treatment for minor jellyfish stings to soothe and cool the affected areas requires the cleaning of residual stingers and then the application of a soothing ointment. The ingredients in our ointment have been formulated to cool, soothe, and help relieve burning and itchy sensations, and hence our company is aptly named Sen Skin.
- Some minor jellyfish stings can be relieved with this method however if you are unsure, seek immediate medical advice. Before applying Skin Again Ointment to a jellyfish sting it’s best to first clean the affected area as there may still be residual stingers. According to healthline.com (https://www.healthline.com/health/jellyfish-sting), most jellyfish stings can be treated initially with salt water or hot water rinse. This will help wash the stinger out and decrease the burning sensation from the sting. It may also help to take a hot shower as soon as possible to wash more of the stingers out. Washing the affected area under hot water for at least 20 minutes is recommended by https://www.healthdirect.gov.au/jellyfish-stings.
- Vinegar can be used to neutralize the stingers of some species of jellyfish, however, vinegar should not be used for bluebottle stings since it doesn’t help the sting and may increase the person’s pain.
Caution: Do not use ammonia, urine, rubbing alcohol, fresh water, or ice. They all can trigger the release of more venom. Do not apply pressure bandages or rub the affected area as this may cause more stingers to be released.
- For immediate relief from jellyfish stings after steps 1 & 2, apply Skin Again Ointment lightly to the affected area. Avoid rubbing the skin as this may agitate any remaining stingers
