Today, after an 8-month wait, I went on my big vacation. The beach, the sea, the dive, the jellyfish, the allergic reaction, the hospital. FML

Peeing on a jellyfish sting aggravates the nematocysts and causes more of them to fire, intensifying the pain. Rinsing the area with sea water will deactivate the stingers and bring some relief. Sorry about your incident, OP.

Hell yeah! Should just keep swimming

I shall call him Squishy and he shall be mine, and he shall be my Squishy.

Hopefully you'll have a speedy recovery and you will get to enjoy the rest of your trip!! Good luck op

I've never heard of anyone being allergic to jellyfish... That's definitely a new one, but I hope you feel better OP and are able to salvage what's left of your vacation.

A jellyfish is a venomous creature that uses stingers to incapacitate prey with a neurotoxin. It's the chemical make up of the neurotoxin that some people are allergic to. Most people breakout in a painful rash for a couple days.

people can be allergic to anything. I'm allergic to oranges...
