Warm weather is blamed, with the peak of the breeding season moved from August to September. Doctors say bathers stung by the jellyfish should wash with cold water, taken painkillers and seek medical assistance. 

Locals are hoping for colder and wetter weather soon, which is expected to disperse the jellyfish.
