Jellyfish stings. Close-up of a rash on the chest of an 86-year-old male patient caused by jellyfish stings. Some species of jellyfish have nematocysts (stinging cells) on their tentacles that inject painful, burning venom into the skin. Most stings are mild and don't require treatment. In extreme cases, a sting may cause difficulty breathing or chest pain, in which case urgent medical attention is required.
