Here on the Cape Cod beaches we often have a problem with stinging
jellyfish. The cure used most frequently on Craigville Beach is a to
make a water and Adolph's meat tenderizer paste. Liberally apply
this paste to the bite or sting. My own sad experience can confirm
this also works for other stinging critters. Ps I have also been
chased off my tractor by bees. Not much fun for sure!!
