Can you put honey on a jellyfish sting?
I was stung by 3 jelly fish, first I applied vinigar but dident feel any releif from the pain, then I had a VERY HOT shower with gave immediate relief then i put mono floral honey (pure 100% honey) on 2 of the 3 stings. The 2 stings that I applied honey too were 80% gone with in an hour or applying the honey. The one sting I did NOT rub with NO honey was still sore and still had big red welts 72 hours later.
100% Honey works very good on jelly fish stings.
If you get a jellyfish sting, put ice on the jellyfish to control the pain. Pour vinegar on the sting of the jellyfish, unless the sting came from a blue bottle jellyfish. Wash the sting with warm water or cold water, and slowly remove the tentacles with gloves or a towel rather than your barehands. Keep in mind that the next time you visit a beach with blue bottle jellyfish, do not touch any jellyfish…
Jellyfish cannot sting hair because hair cannot be penetrated by the jellyfish's tiny stinging 'barbs.' However, the barbs can easily pierce skin and inject the jellyfish venom/poison into the skin and this makes the 'sting.' So it is not a good idea to put a jellyfish on your head, because it just might be able to sting your scalp! Now that WOULD be painful!
