Hi all =)
I "parked" my face into a jellyfish on saturday for the first time, ...got somekinda allergic reaction, so ot was kinda stinging all over my body the rest of the day.
Anyone know how to best treat a jelly fish sting?
Also,....my diving buddy used somekind of neoprene "cold-water hood" to protect against jellyfish treads. Anyone on the forum here got any smart gear you use to protect your face?

pour white vinegar over the affected area for instant results. pain vanishes instantly

as for your face.... well I'd say your eyes are your best defence! :D

I got stung two days on the trot in the small space of my forehead between the top of my mask and my hood.

I looked like the Elephant man :waterwork
haha yea i think id go with vinegar but for future reference, the amonia in pee also relieves it. But um i dont think you want somebody doing that but its handy if you get stung on the leg.
