Default Re: Box jellyfish/Portuguese man-of-war

I hates jellyfish from my days bodysurfing. Came up twice on the same man-o-war and got blasted on my face and neck. Someone had to drive me to Kahuku Hospital for treatment. I don't think I'm allergic to the toxin, but got stung bad enough that the pain caused some distress. My cheek, under my eye, turned greenish black and hard enough to tap my finger nail on and I had welts all around my neck and upper chest which took weeks to clear up.

Whenever we go to the beach, I always pack along Adoph's Meat Tenderizer or a small bottle of vinegar and a bottle of a liquid antihistimine.
