Popular Jellyfish Sting Treatment Also Proven Effective on Stings From Portuguese Man-of-War
Date:6/25/2009

SAVANNAH, Ga., June 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Jellyfish Squish(TM), an FDA compliant solution that works within minutes to relieve the pain of jellyfish stings, was recently proved to be effective on stings caused by the Portuguese man-of-war. Jellyfish Squish(TM) is produced by Coastal Solutions, Inc. in Savannah, Ga., and can be purchased online and at select stores including drug stores and beach supply stores.

In May of 2009 Dr. Peter Verity, a world renowned marine biologist at the Skidaway Institute of Oceanography (an internationally-recognized, multidisciplinary research institution within the University of Georgia system charged with conducting leading edge research on marine resources) was petitioned to conduct a series of scientific experiments to determine whether Jellyfish Squish(TM)'s active ingredient lidocaine, would also relieve the sting of Portuguese man-of-war. Often mistaken for jellyfish, a Portuguese man-of-war is an invertebrate whose tentacles can reach up to 30 feet in length. It lives around the surface of warm ocean waters throughout the world, and can cause painful stings if its tentacles come into contact with human flesh and release its nematocysts.

Several experiments were conducted to determine which products would stop the discharging of nematocysts released from Portuguese man-of-war. Nematocysts are hollow pointed or corkscrew-shaped barbs, which are released when tentacles come into contact with human flesh, causing a painful stinging sensation. After much testing under a microscope, the scientific data proved that applying Jellyfish Squish(TM) on a Portuguese man-of-war paralyzes the unfired nematocysts, preventing them from continuing to fire their toxins. Vinegar, ammonia and other products tested did not paralyze the nematocysts and actually caused the remaining

nematocysts to fire.
