First Aid for Jellyfish Sting

Should you have the unfortunate fate of being stung by a jellyfish, immediately scoop up some sand and rub it on the sting underwater. This helps wash away any remaining jellyfish nettles. Next, apply meat tenderizer, vinegar, or alcohol, which will neutralize the majority of the toxins. Finally, wash the area with soap and fresh water. In case of a severe jellyfish sting, especially if there are allergic reactions, CONSULT A PHYSICIAN!
