Box jellyfish stings

What Not to Do

It’s important to know what you shouldn’t do as well as what you should do in the event of a box jellyfish sting, such as:

  • Do not touch or press on the site of the sting.
  • Do not rinse with fresh water, alcohol, or ammonia (urine), which could spread the venom.
  • Do not ignore it and wait for the pain to go away. Serious complications can still arise hours or days after a sting.
