   I swim and snorkle in the Sea of Cortez a lot.  A sting from a small jellyfish is irritating.  I carry a bottle of vinegar with me on the boat to neutralize the alkaline poison.  It seems to help with the burning feeling a little.  Watch out for the full size ones though.  My wife got hit by a bad one once.  She was in a lot of pain.  She had welts and blisters on her face, back, chest, and arms for days.  I've heard that some can be fatal.  Keep you eyes out for them.  A wet suit or a skin isn't a bad idea.
