Avoid going for a swim if there is a sign of jellyfish
The only way to avoid jellyfish stings is not to go into the water, even on the shore, or get wet with water collected in buckets that may contain fragments of the stinging tentacles.
In case of a jellyfish sting, remember:
- Remove the remaining tentacles
- DO NOT scratch or rub the affected area
- Wash the area with saline solution
- DO NOT apply ammonia, urine or vinegar
- Go to the nearest health centre or beach rescue centre
