Jellyfish dermatitis?

Choose clean water areas and avoid isolated waters. To strengthen personal protection, do not grab or fish seafood directly by hand. When encountering jellyfish floating on the water surface, do not push it with your hands. Do not pick up or touch unidentified sea creatures on the beach.

Also, they prefer to go to the beach when it rains, so try not to swim in the sea after it rains.

If I get stung by accident

What should I do?

Once stung or stabbed, Scientific and effective treatment as soon as possible is critical. The tentacles or venom adhering to the skin can be wiped off with a towel or clothes, not directly by hand. It can be washed with sea water, not with fresh water, as fresh water can promote cnidaria to launch. If possible, it is best to rinse or spray the affected area with an alkaline solution, or apply 10% sodium bicarbonate solution locally. After taking these measures, seek medical attention promptly.

Also remember, Avoid eating jellyfish during a sting, as eating jellyfish will increase jellyfish toxins in the body. At the same time, avoid spicy food.
