    How To Treat Jelly Fish Stings

    Remove yourself from the water.

    1 Stay as motionless as possible.

    2 If you move while trying to heal a jellyfish sting, you'll increase the risk that toxins will be released into your body.

    Apply vinegar to the jellyfish sting.

    3 Soak the affected area with vinegar. If vinegar isn't handy, you might choose to rinse the sting using sea water and isopropyl alcohol.

    Apply shaving cream or a baking soda paste to the affected area.

    4 These things can help immobilize the toxins found in nematocysts. If you choose to apply shaving cream or baking soda, scrape it off using a credit card or even a razor. Once this is done, you should reapply vinegar to the area.

    Remove any tentacles that you find stuck to you.

    5 You can do this with tweezers, gloves, a towel, a shell, or even a credit card. You'll want to take care not to touch the tentacles directly. If you use a towel, make sure that the tentacles do not stick to it--or else you might accidentally be stung again.

    Keep applying vinegar or your other toxin-immobilizing agent to the affected area for at least half an hour, until your symptoms improve.

    6 Consider taking medication for the pain.

    7 Acetaminophen and Ibuprofen are common pain medications that you can buy over the counter and take following the dosing instructions on the package.

    Treat open sores with antibiotic ointments for days after the sting. Use hydrocortisone cream for itchiness, and cover the wounds until they heal
