What to do if you are stung by marine stingers

If you are stung in the tropics, the Australian Resuscitation Council recommends immediately flooding the site with vinegar. This prevents any non-discharged stinging cells, known as nematocysts, from firing. Pick off any remaining tentacles and seek urgent assistance from a lifeguard or, for severe stings, dial triple-zero.

Antivenom is available for box jellyfish stings and is stocked in coastal hospitals and ambulances. For Irukandji stings, vinegar should also be applied and the victim monitored. If symptoms present, medical attention is required.
