Jellyfish Remedies Reviewed in Medical Journal

Just in from Chris Brewster, President of the USLA:

Jellyfish Remedies Reviewed in Medical Journal (abstract of actual medical article)

and/or (the original news article)


"For jellyfish stings: hot water, topical cream


Forget the vinegar, meat tenderizer, baking soda or even urine for treating a jellyfish sting this summer. Hot water and a topical cream are the best treatment, according to researchers at UC San Diego's Department of Emergency Medicine.

The researchers' 16-page review, "Evidence-Based Treatment of Jellyfish Stings in North America and Hawaii," was published this week in the online edition of the Annals of Emergency Medicine."


Thanks Chris!
