marine poisons: or "Wear gloves!" Serious stuff.

This is a link to a thread in a club forum. This is why I urge everyone to wear latex gloves when dealing with their tank, particularly if you are handling rock, which can puncture or cut your fingers. Wear gloves if you have a wound, a hangnail or skin lesion. Wear gloves in general.
This is very serious stuff. Many ERs are slow to recognize it.

Note: a marine sting can be treated with hot water to remove the pain. Vinegar will dissolve bristleworm and urchin spines.

It does nothing about bacteria.
