Jelly fish

Does anyone have experience of the jelly fish stings in Khao Lak. Have just been stung 3 times at the sane monent, on the Ayara villas bean at bang Niang.

Have put vinegar on them,since getting them it appears a few people are stung every day.the welts are huge and so uncomfortable.

Swimming pool only now!! What a pity

Ouch!

There is an ointment that is great for such stings. It's made in Australia from the paw-paw fruit, not sure if it's easily found in Thailand, and it's probably against tripadvisor guidelines to mention a brand name here (so I won't just incase.) But you can even use it on open wounds and it works a treat on my mosi bites and stops the infernal soreness and itching.

I'm coming out to Khao Lak in a few weeks and I'll definitely be packing mine along with antihistamine, also leggings and a long sleeved T shirt to wear whie snorkelling. I find it protects most of your body. Cheaper and more comfortable than a wetsuit or stinger suit.

I didn't think I'd be allowed to mention it's brand name/website, but here goes:

It's called Lucas Papaw ointment and it is sold in either a 25g red tube or 75g 200g jars. Their website is www.lucaspapaw.com.au

No Arandora, absolutely not. So hopefully it'll be OK.

It's just that in the past I've had a couple of posts removed even though I'm sure they were within guidelines. Now I try to be extra careful - whatever the subject.

Hey-ho!
