Meggs my guess is there was a Man-O-War tenacle in that seaweed.
If you had gotten a hold of the whole thing you would of had to see a doctor. I was almost crying it hurt so bad, then the Doc told me no alcohol for 48 hrs, I lasted about 24 hrs. lol!!
After I got out of the water a guy from the dive shop came over & poured some apple vinegar on it to nuetralize it & scraped off the tenacles,he also helped me to the clinic.
