Type of Sting and How to Treat

Jellyfish are small, gelatinous creatures with long tentacles that contain nematocysts. The long tentacles trailing from the jellyfish body can discharge thousands of microscopic barbed stingers that release venom into your skin. Jellyfish stings can vary greatly in severity.  Most often they result in immediate pain and red, irritated marks on the skin.  Some jellyfish stings may cause more whole-body (systemic) illness, and in rare cases, jellyfish stings are life-threatening.  Most jellyfish stings get better with home treatment, but severe reactions require emergency medical care.

Sea anemones and some kinds of coral also contain nematocysts, and stings from anemones or coral are similar to a jellyfish sting.

They use their flower-like tentacles to catch small marine life, which are paralyzed by the anemone’s venom.
