StingMaster is an OTC topical ointment that blocks the pain caused by lionfish venom or jellyfish stings at the source.
Our products were developed by scientists and are the first of their kind. They prevent the propagation of pain signals by blocking the lionfish venom at the nerve endings in the skin.
HOW IT WORKS
1. HOW WE SENSE PAIN
In order to sense pain, a signal goes from the 1. nerve endings in our skin, to the 2. dorsal root ganglia. From there, it goes through the 3. spinal cord to our 4. brain, telling us that we are in pain.
2. GETTING STUNG BY A LIONFISH
- The skin pushes the sheath down as the spine enters
- The venom gland is compressed by the movement of the sheath
- Venom from the gland is released into the victim’s wound. Once released, the venom molecules reach the nerve endings to begin the process of signaling pain.
3. STINGMASTER AT WORK
StingMaster works by blocking the venom's target in the nerve endings. Without activating the nerve, the pain signal is not sent to the brain.
