Advice from Conwy County Borough Council


Warm waters attract jellyfish to Conwy County
Conwy County Borough Council are advising people visiting beaches in the county this summer to keep a look out for jellyfish when going in the sea.

The NHS publishes the following tips for treating a jellyfish sting:

Do:

rinse the affected area with seawater (not fresh water)
remove any spines from the skin using tweezers or the edge of a bank card
soak the area in very warm water (as hot as can be tolerated) for at least 30 minutes – use hot flannels or towels if you can't soak it
take painkillers like paracetamol or ibuprofen


Don't:

use vinegar
urinate on the sting
apply ice or a cold pack
touch any spines with your bare hands
cover or close the wound
Call 111 if you need further advice
