Hey Rhinoman

I've heard that you must submerge the infected part in hot water(as hot as the person can handle) for about half an hour as this will destroy the protein in the poison/venom. Make sure that their isnt a piece of the barb left in the wound. If there is then seek medical treatment as well if the person has an allergic reaction or if the symptoms don't subside.

Thanks for that reply,I have heard of a similar treatment,we will try it out and let "Sealine"know how effective it is.One of the guys got zapped this last weekend at Arabie Dam,he got his wedding ring off just intime before the swelling started.Nasty stuff and real painfull ,and yes,luckliy he didnt have an alergy problem.

No prob. I'm not sure how effective the hot water will be a few days after the incident but he can also take a couple anti hestimines for the swelling and he should be sorted in a few days
