Default !!!Purple Flag for 3 Days!!!

Just a warning to those heading to the beaches. Navarre Beach has been flying Purple Flags for the last three days. They rarely fly these for sharks, so it's safe to assume that the water is thick with jelly fish, or Man of War. Be careful wading through the surf, and remember not to use vinegar, on Man of War Stings as it can cause hemorrhaging and increases toxin delivery and worsens symptoms of stings. Just apply salt water, for about 45 minutes, then follow up with 20 minutes of warm freah water. It's gonna hurt no matter what. Jelly fish stings can be treated with vinegar to relieve pain. Tight Lines!!! YRM

When I used to lifeguard with beach patrol in Texas we would pack wet sand around the affected area until they could get other treatment and that worked fine too. Oh, and of course you could piss on it... lol.

I used to be a lifegaurd up in Maryland on the Cheseapeake Bay/Potomac. In late July/August the Jellyfish would come in force. We would use a gallon of vinegar and a bag of baking soda A DAY. I still get nightmares from the old women that would abuse us and make us rub them with baking soda and vinegar on their legs. *shivers*

Actually the worst thing when I was beach patrol was pulling out chinese fishermen who went under at 110 and came out 180 after a few days in the water. The stench was horrible and my first exposure to death close up. Being the new guy I had the wonderful opportunity of doing those "Rescue and Recoveries". Had 9 in one summer. No bueno...
