Stings flesh[1]

"That's no beauty spell, that's a Stinging Jinx! Don't worry, the swelling will go down shortly."
Someone reassuring a victim.[src]

The Stinging Jinx[2], also known as the Stinging Hex[3] (incantation unknown) is a dark charm that can be used to sting the victim's flesh, producing a red brand like a scorch mark[3] and causing swelling.[1]

History

It is unknown when the jinx was invented and who it was invented by. Hermione Granger used it on Harry Potter as a means of disguising his face when they were caught by Snatchers after inadvertently triggering the Taboo on Voldemort's name in 1998.

Effect of the Stinging Jinx

The affected flesh feels tight, swollen and puffy as though the victim has suffered an allergic reaction, and if used on the face the eyes are reduced to narrow slits.[1]
