- Great story! I've been stung before and it was not pleasant ...Dec 12, 2012
- My mom used the vinegar treatment on myself & siblings, this was nearly 40 yrs ago. She would liberally pour it over the affected area - easy to find as it was always reddish. Me being a kid I figured the jellyfish just hated the smell. Moms are so awesome!
Question - so when stung the jellyfish cnidocytes stay stuck to skin? And the vinegar keeps these cells from releasing the venom but they're still there afterwards? Eeewww...Dec 12, 2012
