Household ammonia, isopropyl alcohol, white vinegar and mix into a paste with baking soda. Apply to jellyfish sting and cover with a warm towel . Heat is the answer to jellyfish stings, never use ice. You will find this remedy to be instant pain relief.

After a week of intense itching which got progressively worse, I was put on a regimen of oral antihistamine and antibiotics.

I had an allergic reaction to a jelly fish sting a few days ago. It got really bad and my tongue and throat started swelling. It was a miracle that they had Benadryl with them but that is not an experience I want to go through again.
