People who are visiting Samaesarn Bay in Sattahip this month are being asked to take extra care when they swim in the sea. Small brown and white jellyfish known as Light Jellyfish were recently spotted in the water around Samaesarn Bay at Khao Ma Chor Pier just outside Bangkok and the Museum of Natural Science, according to a recent report by the Pattaya Mail.

Most people who are stung by these jellyfish will only have a minor reaction, simply feeling some slight itching or burning. For those who have an allergic reaction the effect can be much worse, and victims can experience vomiting, stiffness, severe numbness, muscular and colic pain.

However, for people who are unlucky enough to come into contact with the jellyfish there is a natural remedy available. Simply crush the leaves of a plant known as sea morning glory and rub the plant on the skin to remove the venom from the sting.

The good news is that Samaesarn Bay seems to be the only area the jellyfish currently inhabit. Those who want to swim and enjoy Thailand’s natural beauty can head to the nearby picturesque islands of Samet or Chang.
