The proper treatment for jellyfish stings is vinegar. Ignore anyone who tells you to pee on it; that's useless.

The point isn’t to pee on the stung area of skin, it’s to pee on the jellyfish to teach it a lesson

Make sure to keep your unit far away from the jellyfish's tentacles. Unless you're into that sort of thing.

Am I alone in wanting pretty much anything BUT alcohol in this heat? Alcohol just makes me warmer and dehydrates me.

but makes you feel warmer in the process. Isn't that how it works? Something about blood vessel dilation in the skin.

That's exactly the mechanism, and it does make you feel warmer initially, but leads to lower body temperature. BUT, alcohol is also a diuretic, which is probably a larger effect.
