High occurrence of “Bluebottle” on our beaches

The commonly-known “bluebottle”, also known as the “Portuguese man-o-war”, or  physalia physalis is not a jellyfish but a species of siphonophores made up of a colony of four kinds of polyps. The bluebottle has many long tentacles that, if stung by one, can cause excruciating pain and threaten the safety of bathers.The “bluish” little balloon has occurred often this year on our beaches and it it surprising that still many bathers are unaware of its nefast effects….
IF STUNG, WHAT TO DO…. Depending on the coverage of the stings and the person’s sensitivity, it is best to constantly monitor for an allergic reaction and shock such as severe pain, high swelling, breathing problems, or difficulty swallowing. In this case consult a doctor immediately.Lemon or lime juice and vinegar SPRINKLING on the wound have been found to alleviate pain and swelling.
If you’re at the beach, using a shell or credit card to scrape away the stinging cells will work, NOT your hands and fingers as this will results in you also getting stung.

To assist with pain relief, pain relievers can be used
