Marine experts and lifeguards are keeping an eye on Phuket’s beaches for any more of the pink/purple jellyfish that stung a number of tourists at Nai Harn yesterday. After getting a report from Nai Harn lifeguards that about 6 tourists were stung by anonymous jellyfish, Rawai Mayor, Aroon Solos, headed down to the beach to discuss with the local lifeguards and speak to the tourists.
Marine officials believe they are jellyfish from the Pelagia family, commonly known as flame jellyfish. They say their stings can be painful and cause irritation but unlikely to be fatal. If you do get stung, alert the local lifeguards or seek medical attention for relief. And look for warning signs at the beaches as well or consult a lifeguard before plunging into the water.
Here’s some jellyfish sting relief ADVICE.
