ALOHA! I was stung by jellyfish while snorkeling in Hawaii. I was told
that if I don't have any vinegar with me (why on earth would I bring
vinegar to the beach with me?), I could bathe the area in "urine". Yuk!
It hurt a lot so I used urine from a friend and it brought almost instant
relief. My question is what is in urine that does this?
