GUESS WHAT IS THE REAL FIRST AID. what is the real first aid if you got stung by a jellyfish. what if you are out there on a beach with a friend and there is no first aid available and you are far from any hospital or health centers? guess.

If you happen to have some vinegar on hand that could work - (unless its a porteguese man o war) be careful if the jelly fish is still attached! Vinegar by the way has many many uses - not just for cooking. Don't use fresh water to clean wounds as the change in ph can release more venom. If you have nothing - you could use urine - you'd be suprized how many things this is good for - even feces has been used for first aid - not of jelly fish though - and spiderwebs.

Again, spiderwebs aren't used for firstaid for jellyfish - but has been used for first aid, wanted to elaborate.
