With white, fine sand and the calming waters, its no surprise why locals and tourists alike love taking a dip at Philippines’ beaches. But, even then, there are dangers lurking in paradise. In the event you get stung by jellyfish, here’s what you need to do:
Jellyfish are found in oceans all over the world, some species are completely harmless, while some, like the box jellyfish, could be extremely dangerous.
Jellyfish sting with their tentacles, once stung, the victim may feel sharp pains in the affected area, raised welts, or itching. In extreme cases, these stings could cause nausea, vomiting, and if untreated, even death.

There are over 2,000 species of jellyfish and they can thrive in different water environments. More often than not, you will encounter one — do not let this fact stop you from enjoying your vacation. The best thing you could do is come prepared.
