Actor Enchong Dee was stung by a jellyfish during the swimming leg of a triathlon event he participated in over the weekend, he revealed on Instagram Monday.

Dee, 29, showed the sting marks on the side of his abdomen in an Instagram Stories update, writing, "So apparently jellyfish partyed inside my trisuit yesterday."

The competitive swimmer asked his followers on the site to share with him suggestions on "how I can get rid of all the marks [as soon as possible]."

Dee was one of the participants in the Regent Aguila Ironman 70.3 Asia-Pacific Championships, which was held last Sunday in Lapu-Lapu City. Second off the water, Dee beat his personal record of 31:04 with 28:12, he revealed in a separate post.

Dee did not appear seriously hurt from the jellyfish sting. In subsequent updates, he shared behind-the-scenes photos of the primetime series "The Blood Sisters," in which he stars opposite Erich Gonzales.

He went on to thank those who messaged him to give tips on addressing the sting marks from the jellyfish. He said, "I'm using some of your suggestions for a faster recovery."

Dee, whose injury from the jellyfish encounter appeared minor, was fortunate compared to a similar incident involving fellow Kapamilya star Anne Curtis, who experienced "vomiting, extreme pain and delirium" after being stung by the deadly box jellyfish in 2014.
