Active Comparator: 1
Safe Sea™ jellyfish sting inhibitor (barrier, or "repellent") lotion
Other: Safe Sea sun lotion with jellyfish sting protection SPF 15
Prevent or significantly reduce jellyfish sting using sun lotion with a jellyfish sting inhibitor. The amount of lotion applied to the skin before spreading is the same as for regular sun lotion 2.00 mg.cm-²± 2.5%.
Other Name: SunCare sunlotion with jellyfish sting protection SPF 15
Placebo Comparator: 2
Regular sun lotion
Other: Nivea sun, caring sun lotion SPF 15
The amount of lotion applied to the skin before spreading is 2.00 mg.cm-²± 2.5%.
- The purpose of the study is to investigate the effectiveness of a sun lotion containing a specific Jellyfish sting inhibitor versus regular sun lotions or no protection at all when in contact with Cyanea SP. [ Time Frame: Repeated jellyfish contact for total of 240 second or until pain occurs ]We want to find out how much longer it takes before you get stung if one at all gets stung when you have a protective layer on the skin. We also want to find out if the reduction in pain is significantly less when the skin has jellyfish protection using visual analog scale (VAS).
- Investigate the effectiveness of hot/cold immersion for the treatment of Cyanea sp stings versus local pain relief with prescription free pharmaceutical drugs called Xylocain with lidocaine [ Time Frame: Pain relief treatment will start after 10 minutes, repeat treatment after 30 minutes if VAS score > 10. ]
