Caption

Jellyfish sting on a patient's shoulder. A jellyfish's tentacles contain stinging cells (nematocysts) that discharge venom when touched. The severity of a jellyfish sting depends on the species that inflicted it. Symptoms can range from a mild rash to death. Treatment involves removing any attached tentacles and then using vinegar to neutralise the stinging cells.
